African Americans living in Colonial Anne Arundel Maryland Households

+2 votes
Hello- In researching my ancestor, Thomas Linthicum Junior, I came across a baptismal record for a "negro man" who was living in his household. Evidently, the black man named Richard Harris had impregnated a black woman named Elizabeth Powell, who was living in the household of Thomas Linthicum's brother-in-law, Richard Snowden.

The couple had a child named John Powell, who was baptized in the All Hallows church at Anne Arundel County, Maryland. All three of the African Americans were baptized together in the church on the same day, April 30, 1699.

I am hoping to make it easy for African American researchers to find these profiles that I created. Also, I am looking for more information about any other descendants of the Powell/ Harris lineage.

I am not certain about categories and I want to do it correctly. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

It would help to write up a full profile with everything you know about each person. Including linking the profile of the person in whose household they were living, listing the church and dates of baptism, ect. If they were enslaved there are catagories for slaves in specific states and counties so you could add them to those catagories. Also if the were slaves and you know who their owners are add the owners to the slave owner catagory for that state/county
