Negro (Slave) Register of Washington County, Pennsylvania pages 1 & 2 of 38

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.
