About Negro (enslaved by Jane Usher Pullins)
1750 - The first Negro slave known to be in the vicinity of present Highland County, Virginia was a girl or young woman purchased for Ann Jane USHER by her guardian about 1750. It is very possible that this slave is the one whom Mrs Loftus PULLIN (nee USHER) set free by her will in 1805.
