Thomas O'Neal

Thomas O'Neal lives with Betsey and Peter Herbert's family in the Birchtown Muster along with the four Herbert children (Lancaster, Jenny, Nancy and Betty) and two infant orphan girls, Abby and Molly, about whom we have no other information. Thomas is not in the Book of Negroes and it is unclear whether he had any connection with the Herberts prior to Birchtown.
