note: not an actual image of Georgianna
One of the Pry’s servants, Georgianna Rollins was an African American woman who worked in the house. She was free woman, not a slave.
The Pry’s home in Keedysville sat very close to Virginia: slave country. Working so close to Virginia, Rollins was in danger of being kidnapped and sold into slavery. However, Rollins was able to maintain her freedom. She would go on to marry, have 8 children, and live out a full life.
