      Montgomery County Land Records, 1777-1781; Liber A1, Page 580. Deposition, recorded at the request of Robert Thomas. The deposition of John Evans, aged about 63, deposes that upwards of 36 years ago, I was at Samuel White's in Prince George's County, and the sd Saml White, in my presence, called a Negro girl of his to him called Murrier, and laid his hand on her head, and said this girl I have given to my son, Guy White, and ever after that, while I stayed in the County, which was many years, the sd Negro was called Guy White's by sd Saml White and all his family. Sd Negro girl was not above 6 years old, if that, when I heard sd Saml White first say he had given her to Guy White, and several times after that, I heard the sd Saml White say that Murrier belonged to Guy White. The sd Guy White being in debt and I being very intimate with the sd Saml White, he got me to put his son, Guy White, on board a vessel at the mouth of Patuxent [River], in order to go to Virginia to live, which he did, and after I returned and told sd Saml White what I had done. Well, said Saml White, what I had given Guy White his children must have. Questioners asked the sd Deponent by Jos. White Claget -
      Question 1, how did sd Deponent come at Saml White's on the day he gave the Negro girl Murrier to Guy White - Answer - I was at harvest when he gave her -
      Question 2, where did Guy White live when this Negro girl Murrier was given - answer - with his father.
      Question 3, why did not Saml White give this Negro girl into his son's possession - answer - the son, Guy White, was in debt and he was afraid she would be taken from him, the sd Guy White, being a housekeeper at that time.
      Question 4, what was the size of Guy White when the Negro girl Murrier was given to him - answer - a stout lad.
      Question 5, how many children had Guy White when you carried him to the mouth of Patuxent - answer - 2 children living.
      Question 6, who was present at the time Saml White gave this Negro girl, Murrier, to Guy White - answer - Benjamin White, Stephen Stamp, John Miles, and many others this Deponent cannot recollect. Signed - John Evans.
      I certify that the afd deposition and questions were taken before me in the house of Mr. John Beall's in George Town on Nov 9, 1790, in the presence of Joseph White Clagett of Prince George's County and Robert Thomas of M. Signed - Thos. Beall of Geo*. Recorded Nov 17, 1780.
