This short article appeared on June 30, 1821 in the Niles Weekly Register. Named for founder Hezekiah Niles, the newspaper was published in Baltimore, Ohio between 1811 and 1849. The article announces the arrival of 58 free blacks who were en route from plantations in Virginia to a settlement in Brown County, Ohio. They were formerly slaves of Samuel Gist, a wealthy British banker with extensive land holdings in the United States. In his will, Gist freed his 900 slaves and directed the executors of his will to establish new homes for them in a free state. Settlements established in Brown County and Highland County were not prosperous.
