In Reply to: 1759-Saint Mary's Parish by Martey Massey of 750

If they still exist, the St. Mary's Parish records have not been located.

The record you cite is from the Caroline County Court Order Book 1757-1763, page 3, with the date you indicated.

This Elizabeth Massey's child or children were taken from her and sent to live with a family that would - or should have - taught them a life skill. Often this was just another form of early American slavery as the child just did physical labor.

This Elizabeth Massey may be the same person as: Elizabeth Massey a servant woman of Nathan Chapman having a bastard child declared that William Cockran is the father of the child. It's ordered that said servant serve according to law. [Caroline County Court Order Book 1746-1754, page 80, dated 8 April 1748]
