White Widowhood

(p.88) 5 White Widowhood
Ancestors of Worthy Life

University Press of Florida

Chapter 5 discusses Margaret Carroll’s life in widowhood. Government documents of postcolonial Maryland, in particular, tracked the enslaved population’s family relationships, life cycles, skill expertise, and other identifying characteristics of one of the largest enslaved populations in Baltimore County. As a result, details emerged from the post-Revolutionary era at Mount Clare between 1783 and 1817 about the enslaved population within the contexts of white widowhood and Baltimorean trends in African American life. This chapter examines generations of enslaved people living at Mount Clare and the influences facing Margaret as she considered freeing them.
