I was bron [born] in Wilmington, N.C.
I belonged to John Stanley. I was
sold and two children to a Negro
trader by the name of Davis. He
brought me and children to Peters-

Picket and some Peter Stanley; he
belonged to the Pickets, who lived
in Dupelin county. My father had
three children, and I am the oldest.
