Document Signed by James Hight, 1pp quarto, on laid paper, October 13, 1801, Fishkill, New York, and reads in part: “...For and in consideration of the sum of two hundred dollars lawful money of the state of New York to me in hand paid by Thomas Parker of the town of Poughkeepsie...Do grant, bargained and sold unto the said Thomas Parker...a Negro man slave aged about nineteen years named Dick....” Fine condition. Historically, the enslavement of overwhelmingly African people in the United States, began in New York as part of the Dutch slave trade. The Dutch West India Company imported 11 African slaves to New Amsterdam in 1626, with the first slave auction being held in New Amsterdam in 1655. The last slaves were freed on July 4, 1827. Some younger black New Yorkers born to slave mothers continued to serve indentures into their 20s.
