Martha Washington and Oney Judge
Sunday, April 22, 2018 at 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Oney “Ona” Judge served as personal servant to Martha Washington until she escaped from the President’s Mansion in Philadelphia and relocated to Portsmouth, New Hampshire in 1796. At age ten, Judge was incorporated into Mount Vernon’s labor force, working in the Mansion. Always a personal favorite of Martha Washington’s, Judge was one of the handful of slaves brought by George and Martha Washington to New York in 1789 and then to Philadelphia in 1790 at the start of the presidency.
Listen as Oney Judge, portrayed by Alex Simpson, and Martha, portrayed by Pat Jordan, retell their personal stories.
