A Lenape Among the Quakers: The Life of Hannah Freeman

Join the Chester County Historical Society on Wednesday, April 13, at 7 pm, for a “pay as you wish” lecture on Zoom about Hannah Freeman. The historical society writes: “On July 28, 1797, an elderly Lenape woman stood before the newly appointed almsman of Pennsylvania’s Chester County and delivered a brief account of her life. In a sad irony, Hannah Freeman was establishing her residency—a claim that paved the way for her removal to the poorhouse. Ultimately, however, it meant the final removal from the ancestral land she had so tenaciously maintained.”
