Olney (also known as Ony) was an enslaved man that lived and worked at Tuckahoe during the Allen period. He is thought to have been born sometime between 1806-1808. Allen’s account notes that he and his children (John, Stephen, Henry, and Frances) worked in the fields. No mention is made of Olney’s wife in any records. Sometime after July 1850, Joseph Allen sold Olney’s son, John for $623. His fate remains unknown to us as well.
