Bazabeel Norman, also known variously as Basil, Bazil and Bazael, among other variants, was a free mulatto (biracial) Revolutionary War soldier, serving in the 7th Maryland Regiment under the command of Colonel John Gunby from 6 June 1778 and until 31 July 1783. His mother was a mulatto indentured servant of British and African ancestry named Jane. Bazabeel also served an indenture until age twenty-one but was never enslaved, nor were his descendants. He was the second black landowner in the state of Ohio. His direct descendent Major Henry A. Norman was a Tuskegee Airman who fought in World War II.
