Hi Yvonne, Thanks for your response! It's pretty interesting - I was told that the records indicate my 4th GGM Anna Catherine ROGIERS also owned slaves after her emancipation, and made a living by renting them out - strange, eh? What I'm curious about is her relationship to Andreas Baa. I have seen the Baa surname in my Caribbean research but did not know it was also the name of a tribe in Senegal. I don't know anything about the procedure for emancipation. Since the governor actually signed off on her emancipation in 1782, I do not know what part Andreas Baa played other than to (I guess) request the governor grant it. So my assumption might be that he owned her as a slave, unless there could be another scenario that he would be the one who emancipated her. I also wonder if they were related somehow, but I would think her African ancestry was on her mother's side. Every generation I get to in my Caribbean lineage seems to be considered "mulatto" in documents, so I still haven't found the ancestor who came from Africa. Your message gives me hope that I may be getting closer. Do you have any further info on Andreas Baa or any sources on the 'net? Again, many thanks!
