  • Notes 
    • It was long speculated that our Persons hailed from Northampton and migrated to surrounding areas after being freed. This is confirmed on the death certificate of Thomas J. Person. His father, was Sterling Person who married an Olive Ellis around 1850. We find on the 1850 Slave Census for Northampton two very peculiar artifacts. We find two white slave owners with very interesting names: Daniel Ellis and Thomas J. Person. There is definitely a connection that cannot go ignored. - R. Finley Sr - 06-10-2008
