Beloved “Mauma”  "Stands among the faithful on the right of the King."
Mollie was brought from Africa to South Carolina as a slave and then to Florida in the 1830s. She came to Jefferson County with the family of John Partridge and served as a beloved nurse to the children of the family. This photo dates to the late 1850s. (Florida State Archives)
(Diary of Henry Edward Partridge, written in 1873)
"We buried either in 57 or 58 our faithful old "Mauma" Mollie - her who had nursed nearly all of the children of the family; been a friend as well as faithful servant to my Mother; in whose cabin we had often eaten the homely meal of fried bacon & ash cake and where we always had welcome and sympathy and whom we loved as a second mother. Black of skin pure of heart, she doubtless stands among the faithful on the right of the King."
