List of Emancipated Blacks Who Were Re-Enslaved

(p.100) 9 1777–1797
The Having of Negroes Is Become a Burden

Michael J. Crawford

University Press of Florida

In 1792, the Standing Committee of the North Carolina Yearly Meeting for the Western Quarter wrote to the Philadelphia Meeting for Sufferings regarding the plight of manumitted persons who had been re-enslaved under the laws of North Carolina. The Eastern Quarter's report, dated 9 January 1797, provided an accounting of 134 blacks whom North Carolina Quakers had freed since the 1770s and who had been re-enslaved, saying that there were more whose cases could not be documented with the available records. One of the 134 emancipated slaves who had been seized and sold was a woman named Dinah whom George Walton had set free.
