Did You Know

...that Lott Cary was an African American slave in Virginia who became educated, bought his freedom, became a minister and physician, and helped found the Colony of Liberia in Africa in 1822?

Birth year[edit]

If he died when he was forty-nine in 1828, he couldn't have been born in 1780. He would have had to have been born in 1779. --Saforrest 19:36, 30 September 2005 (UTC)

I have multiple sources for the birth year, and one for claiming age 49 at death. The one about 49 at death is most likely the incorrect one, so I am deleting it from the text for now. If I come across a better birthdate than simple 1780, I will certainly revisit this issue. Thanks for the observation. the collaboration is a part of what makes Wikipedia so much fun.

Spelling[edit]

Since the article is entitled "Lott Carey", use this spelling throughout.--Parkwells (talk) 18:47, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

Cary preferred in official records[edit]

Have moved page to "Lott Cary" (and changed spelling in article) to reflect preferred spelling in official records: road honoring him, historical nomination of his birth site, etc.--Parkwells (talk) 18:39, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

Maybe, but your article seems to make no mention of Careysburg in Liberia, also named after him. As a Carey myself I know the name gets mispelt in that way constantly that far back. I'm not aware of very many Carys, but Careys are everywhere. The only reliable source would be something he wrote himself, if he could write of course. 90.195.131.21 (talk) 18:03, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessarily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request it's removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:
