In Response To: Slaves freed in Virginia after 1782 ()
p.260, I Mary Pleasants of the county of Goochland being fully persuaded that freedom is the natural right of all mankind....emancipate Cato 70, Dick 48, Biddy 65, Judy 60,. 19 October 1782, proved 21 October 1782.
I hope Mary Pleasants had a place for these elderly slaves to live and enjoy their freedom without having to toil in their old age.
