I am looking for information on Nancy and her siblings Phillis, Bowling and John; all have the last name of Martiller. I'm not sure what island they came from. They were brought to Virginia, USA by a sea captain named Muscoe Livingston in 1783. At that time Nancy was 7 years old; she was born in 1776. She and her siblings were slaves belonging to Livingston, but on his death in 1798 successfully sued for their freedom.
