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?
