A Lenape Among the Quakers: The Life of Hannah Freeman

April 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Wednesday, April 13, 2022 7:00pm-8:00pm via Zoom

On July 28, 1797, an elderly Lenape woman stood before the newly appointed almsman of Pennsylvania’s Chester County and delivered a brief account of her life. In a sad irony, Hannah Freeman was establishing her residency—a claim that paved the way for her removal to the poorhouse. Ultimately, however, it meant the final removal from the ancestral land she had so tenaciously maintained. Sponsored by The Haverford Trust Company.
