Dee Hill, my 3x great-grandfather, John Cupit Rosborough, and his parents, John Rosborough and Ann Cupit, used to own the Rosborough house that sits where the current Century House is today. John Cupit Rosborough died in 1860. His parents John and Ann came from Antrim, Ireland.

Is there a book with the slave and slave owner in it. I am looking for my great great grandparents
who were from Ireland. My great grandfather was born in the Century House in 1844. His name was Benjamin Murphy. Please what help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for taking time to read this.
