Marian Morong Adger 1816-

Marian Morong Adger was a full-blooded Native American born in New York. She was kidnapped into slavery during a visit to South Carolina around 1810. Family members were able to raise enough money to buy her freedom as well as her child. Marian was married to Robert Adger and Robert Mara Adger was one of her 13 children. Seven of their nine children were born in South Carolina. She is listed in the 1850 census as being 34 years old. Living in the same household at the time were Diana Morong (59) and Catharine Morong (22). Presumably, these would be her mother and sister
