Title

Certificate of Freedom (1841)

Description

In 1840, Jane Rudolph grants twenty-two-year-old William Moulden his freedom. According to Pennsylvania’s gradual abolition policies, Moulden was not legally required to be freed until twenty-eight years old. Moulden continued to work for Rudolph as a free man until 1843.

This certifies that Moulden was freed in 1840.
