Busico
(Record # 42)

Cate
(Record # 49)
Notes: Cate buried at the expense of Aaron
Cato
(Record # 50)
Notes: Seems to have first belonged to Rev. Isaac Foster, valued at £22 in his inventory; belonged to Anne Burnham's son Joseph Buckingham; "Paul Buckingham, Negro" paid for the burial. On the last page of Joseph Buckingham's papers on Ancestry.com (saved in Shoebox) it lists Cato, Zipporah, Nunny and an infant, and Paul, as being Joseph's slaves. Since he never married or had children, his mother Anne inherited his estate. Cato inherited a bequest of 30 pounds when Buckingham died.
Cato
(Record # 51)
Notes: The entry in the church record for Cato's death says "Cato Negro", and not "Cato, A Negro." Although no master is identified, the dates suggest this is the same Cato who belonged to the late Samuel Woodbridge--someone known to the Church; In the will of S. Woodbridge, valued with Tony @ £250 for both.
