Corah was an enslaved woman during the Randolph period. We have seen her name appear in tax records for Thomas Mann Randolph’s estate as early as 1782. In a 1790 indenture list, she is specifically mentioned as the blacksmith along with one other worker (Matt). Although somewhat rare, female blacksmiths did exist in the colonial period.
As we believe the Old Stable building may have been used as the location for the blacksmith at one point, it is entirely possible that Corah and Matt would have worked in that building once.
When Thomas Mann Randolph died in 1793, his estate including the enslaved workers was sold off. Corah’s name has not been identified on this list and it is unknown what would have happened to her.
