Thanks for the info and link. I'm not certain if Lucy was a Revolutionary War veteran's widow. I have also viewed records that appeared too similar or possibly the same persons.
It's confusing to me but according to my research Lucy was a slave or servant. Too, there is some history of Everittsville and their family plantation. When I think of plantation and slaves, I don't think of hundreds of slaves on a farm. History shows, more often it would be farming white families or just a few slaves, servants or tenants. Also, considering slaves as property, it would be more practical and profitable to increase the slave stock to maintain the farm or attain some measure of wealth.
