Zipporah

Anne Burnham freed the servants; “Zipporah, a Negro Woman. [died of] Old Age. Dropsy. 80 years.” on October 7, 1795. On the last page of Joseph Buckingham’s (d. 1761) papers on Ancestry.com 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. The First Church record of her burial says, “Siperah Negro, Burlal charges the Town.”
