Madison Hemings' Story

In 1834, I married Mary McCoy.  Her grandmother was a slave, and lived with her master, Stephen Hughes, near Charlottesville, as his wife.  She was manumitted by him, which made their children free born.  Mary McCoy's mother was his daughter.  I was about 28 and she was 22 years of age when we married.  We lived  and labored together in Virginia till 1836, when we voluntarily left and came to Ohio.
