References to lineage of men indentured but not my research area - what to do?

In researching my family, I have found references to several men that were indentured to them to learn a trade. These indentures were recorded in deed books most often.

Here is an example of one

May 15, 1775 – Hezekiah Freeman is apprenticed to John Sanders to learn the trade of house carpenter and joiner for a term of five years. He is the orphan of John Freeman of Gloucester County, Virginia.

I have searched WikiTree and did not find this man. I hate to see these references just left buried in my records. Suggestions?

I created a profile (?) for [[Hezekial Freeman|Freeman-12430]] But I don't necessarily want to do this for all of them unless the community thinks it's worthwhile.
Nancy, I have an ongoing project with a lot of people not related to me, so I have to create profiles for them. I think it’s worthwhile, if only for someone to come along later and be glad they are already there.

category - needs profiles created, let me see...

on his profile put the information about these men, or a link to it so someone with time can do it then go to the top of the biography part where those little buttons are and press the second to last one - category

and start typing - needs profiles created and a drop down will occur - it wants a place in front of it as you will see

hope this helps
