Biographical Description
John Annin, known as Jack, was an enslaved man, born around 1797. His enslaver was Joseph Annin of Somerset County, NJ. In 1807, when Jack was 10 years old, Joseph Annin sold Jack to James Parker Jr. (1776-1868) of Perth Amboy, Middlesex County, NJ. At that time, James Parker promised to manumit Jack when he turned 25 years old. James Parker fulfilled his promise and manumitted Jack on August 8, 1822. The manumission documents listed the man's name as "John Annin (usually called Jack)."
