1786 Manumission of slaves

Recommended Posts

I'm so proud of my 5th great grandfather, Rowland Rogers.  He was a wealthy Quaker land-owner in Maryland in the 18th century.  In 1786, he ordered the manumission (freedom) of his slaves, Adam, James, Chloe, Bobb, and Jimmey.  The actual document is below.  I'd love to find out what happened to those folks...  I did find Adam in the 1790 census, owning a farm in Maryland, but nothing after that.
