The following is taken from a previously transcribed (date author unknown) "Negro (Slave) Register of Washington County Pennsylvania, From 1782 to 1851" found at Citizen's Library, at Washington, Washington County, Pennsylvania. Hopefully this will be of help to someone.  I am making every effort to type this exactly as the original transcript - errors and all. ? are mine where I was unable to read the type from what looks like a very old typewriter that was in need of a good cleaning. xxxs are a part of the original transcript and were typeovers.  No guarantee of accuracy - please consult the original record if you find something of interest here.  Jan Slater
