an example…


0080 (Accession # 21278202). Chowan County, North Carolina. Anne Anderson, a widow, sues Samuel Kerr, her grandson, for debt. She seeks payment of £1,269 for the twelve slaves she hired to him during the late 1760s and 1770s. She notes that Kerr now resides outside the United States in British-held New York City.

I suspect this is the widow of Joseph Anderson of Chowan… the attorney.

………”British-held New York City”……..
