Notes for JOHN DEHARTFrom: Susan S. Buckley <spice3@juno.com>; Subject: NJ, DeHART, Cornelius, 1874-'76;  Date: 7 Jul 1998 08:11:56 -0700; From "Somerset County (NJ) Historical Quarterly", vol. V, 1916.;  Edited by A. Van Doren Honeyman. The following is copied from >an article in a series entitled Franklin Township Historical Notes by the Late Judge Ralph Voorhees, in 1874-76.  "The early settlers, in clearing the forests, were much assisted by their slaves. In some families they were numerous, The success of the farmers depended upon the rapid clearing of the forests, in which they rendered important assistance. One of the Vliet families, it was said, owned 17 slaves, composed of different ages and sexes. Cornelius DeHart, the first settler, purchased from a slave vessel a negro girl, named Phillis, who had been kidnapped, and was a daughter of one of the Kings of Africa. She related that on the voyage to America she was often terribly frightened by some of the crew attempting to feel of her hands, she supposing that it was done for the purpose of ascertaining whether she was in good condition for slaughtering, and her body to be eaten, as the neighboring tribes of cannibals did in Africa, to avoid which she fasted to cause leanness, so as to disappoint them in their expectations, and thereby preserve her life. She was a faithful servant in the family, but had a great desire that a time might come when she would be able to say that she, the King's daughter, was free. Her desire, in the course of time, was granted. Another of her desires was that before she died she might also see her youngest son, Thomas, free, which she was also permitted to see. In her old age Abraham DeHart built a house for her on his land, in which she enjoyed the freedom so earnestly coveted, and in which she lived and died. Her son Thomas, who was also freed, lived there with her until she died. Her remains lie buried with those of several of her children, in a colored burying-ground on the south bank of the Six-Mile Run brook, with others of the Vliet, Van Cleef and DeHart colored families. It is located about 200 yards east of the residence of Ralph Voorhees, Jr."
