My family history includes the story of who owned Mum Bett and how she suffered the severe injury to her arm. It did not occur at Col. Ashley's residence as described here. It occurred with a Dutch family in New York. She fled to Col Ashley who was sympathetic to her situation. You might do more research on this and post a correction if my family stories are valid.
