Maggie Delaney's story

Recommended Posts

Submitted for your approval, a tale of an Indentured Servant in Colonial America. When the phrase "Indentured Servant" comes up, I picture a minor child serving a master in the 17th or 18th century American colonies. This tale is somewhat different, as a family of evicted Irish tenant farmers sign Indenture papers and end up in Philadelphia for sale to the highest bidder. If you have an ancestor who was an Indentured Servant, this tale will open your eyes to the "Pre-Steerage" Irish before the Irish Potato Famine. Warning: The "Onion cutters" are ready for even the most stalwart descendant.

You don't want "Irish Luck," that's bad luck...
