Bob was an enslaved worker at Tuckahoe during the Wight period. He was thought to be born sometime around 1801. On January 5, 1836, Bob ran away from Tuckahoe. Edwin Wight put out an ad in the paper offering $20 for his return. He described Bob as a “thick, well set fellow, dark skin, large flat nose” who was about 5’ 8” or 10” high with a scar on his left eye which was the result of a burn. Wight goes on to say that Bob had numerous relatives around the Virginia area including a wife near the New Kent Courthouse (owned by William Mocock), his mother in Richmond (owned by Col. John Christian) and other relations along the Chickahominy River (owned by Gen. J. B. Harvie). Bob’s ultimate fate remains unknown to us at this time.
