Birth certificate of Eleanor, born April 9, 1807, to a 'Negro woman Margaret' and her husband Pompey. Includes note that Eleanor was baptised by Reverend Mr. Harris [probably Rev. William Harris] at St. Mark's Church in the Bowery and sponsored by Margaret's owner, widow Christian Marschalk of New York City. In document, Marschalk expresses concern that a certficate had not already been submitted by her attorney, Dirck Ten Broeck [Dirk Tenbroeck], and thus submits a second.
