David McFoyDavid McFoy lived in Westmoreland County he
bore a good character & taught school he came

his colour a dark brown- clean limbed-
I mean by dark brown- That he was of African
or negro Extraction- His father & mother both being
of African decent- It has been about
two years since I saw him- he was then
running on a steam Boat I think as a
fireman - I know that he was a
freeman & never was a slave. and further
