About Mingo, slave of Dr. Jeremiah Duvall
Mingo claimed to be the son of a king. He was kidnapped in 1735.
Mingo was owned by Jacob Ryan, and bought by Dr. Jeremiah Duvall for 1 steer. He became the property of the Foster family who took him to Pennsylvania. In 1793 Richard Foster gave him a piece of land for life. The Foster, Duvall, and Fenner families built him a cabin and furnished him with what he needed.
In 1814, after performing many voodoo ceremonies, Mingo laid down and died.
