Friend of Friends Friday: Joe, Slave of James Wynn, Deceased

North Carolina Magazine or Universal Intelligencer, 6 July-13 July 1764, page 48

RAN away from my Saw Mill on Slocomb's Creek, a Negro Fellow named Joe, belonging to the Estate of James Wynn, deceased. He is a well sett Fellow, aged about 45, and has a very ill Look. 'Tis supposed he is harboured at Core Sound, where he is well known. Any Person that shall be found to harbour or entertain him, will be prosecuted with Rigour.
