Vincent Tippett, St. Mary's County, MD

I was wondering if anyone had any information about a Vincent Tippett who was born about 1771/2 in St. Mary's County, MD. He was the son of Hezekiah Tippett and Anna Heeb. Vincent had siblings named Susanna, Sarah, and Edward. His mother, Anna Heeb, was married first to Hezekiah Tippett, second to Clement Gardiner and third to James Morgan.

I am most curious about Vincent Tippett because of a 1799 Orphans Court Record which indicates that Vincent Tippett, aged 7 years old, was sold into servitute until his 21st birthday. The actual court record reads as follows: "August 1799 in St. Mary's County Orphans Court, listed under Ann Tippett, the reference states: The court binds Vincent Tippett aged seven years old the 22nd day of September next to the consent of his mother Ann Tippett to Joseph Parsons to serve him till he arrives to the age of twenty one years the said Parsons obliges himself to find the said Vincent during the time of his servitude, sufficient clothing, meat, drink, washing and lodging and at the expiration of his servitude to give him a suit of clothes of coarse broad cloth, two pairs of shoes and stockings, a hat of silk handkerchief under the penalty of 20 pounds sterling."

I find no further reference to Vincent Tippett in any other Maryland records after that date and often wonder what happened to this child. Does anyone know anything further about Vincent Tippett?

Many thanks for your assistance.
