His fate was to be born a slave in Camden County, N. But he found a way, through hard work and a strong intellect, not only to endure but to prosper, buy his freedom and tell his life story to abolitionists, who used it to enlighten people about the evils of slavery. His was a hard existence cutting timber and running boats along the snake-infested Great Dismal Swamp Canal. He also worked with white merchants bringing goods into port in Norfolk and Portsmouth.
It was not uncommon for an owner to allow slaves to engage in private enterprise as long as the owner shared in the profits. Grandy earned enough money to buy his freedom three times - the first two times his masters stole it and kept him in bondage. After finally being freed, he earned enough to buy the freedom of his wife and other relatives as well. For the full Virginian Pilot story, Click here.
He was his mother's youngest child. At least eight of his brothers and sisters were sold by his master, Billy Grandy, to other slave-owners. When his master, Billy Grandy, died, the slaves owned by Grandy were divided among Grandy's children. Moses and his mother went to Grandy's son James. Moses was about 8 years old at the time. Moses new master James Grandy was also 8 years old at the time, and so as was the custom at the time, until the owner came of age the services of any slaves that he owned were auctioned off on a yearly basis at the County Courthouse each year in January.
This was a common practice for slaves owned by masters who were under aged. During his youth, Moses was hired out many times, to both good and bad employers. Sometime after James Grandy came of age, Moses married a slave belonging to Mr. Enoch Sawyer. This would be his 1st wife. She was later sold to a Mr. Rogerson, while Moses was working on a boat. When they came up to me, one of them cried out, "Moses, my dear! She cried out to me, "I am gone.
Rogerson was with them, on his horse, armed with pistols. I said to him, "for God's sake, have you bought my wife? He drew out a pistol, and said that if I went near the waggon on which she was, he would shoot me. I asked for leave to shake hands with her, which he refused, but said I might stand at a distance and talk with her.
My heart was so full, that I could say very little.
I asked leave to give her a dram: he told Mr. Burgess, the man who was with him, to get down and carry it to her. I gave her the little money I had in my pocket, and bid her farewell. I have never seen or heard of her from that day to this. I loved her as I loved my life. Even after coming of age, James Grandy continued hiring the services of Moses out to others. One of Moses employers, a Mr. Grice whom Moses had served faithfully and developed a sort of friendship, advised him that he should try to buy his freedom from his master.
Moses had, after all, been very good at obtaining profit for those whom he had worked and had been able to save a portion of his earnings for himself.

So he went to his master, negotiated a price, then set about earning that amount and paying his master in portions getting receipts along the way until it was paid off. When the final payment was made, his master tore up all the receipts and refused to grant him his freedom papers. While Moses thought he was free, he was not and he was sold to a Mr. Trewitt by James Grandy. Grandy's sister, a Mrs. Grice felt bad about the whole deal and sued her brother James on behalf of Moses in an attempt to obtain Moses freedom.
The courts sided with James Grandy, saying that Moses and all he could do belonged to James and that he had a right to do as he pleased with him and all his earnings and property until he had taken him to the Court House and given him his freedom papers. As a result of the court case, the sale of Moses to Mr. Trewitt was made to stand. Clarification: Moses paid his masters a cut of his earnings from employers for which he was hired out. Moses agreed to this arrangement. Trewitt failed to grant the freedom papers, sending Moses instead with a letter to a Mr. Mews regarding a mortgage that had apparently been taken out on Moses himself.
Apparently, Trewitt defaulted on the mortgage and the ownership of Moses again changed hands. Mews informed Moses that Enoch Sawyer wanted to buy him. This was not an arrangement that Moses was altogether in favor of, but Mr. Sawyer twisted his arm by way of refusing to let Moses see his wife Moses 2nd wife was a slave owned by Enoch Sawyer, just as his 1st wife had been. Moses relented and agreed to be sold to Enoch Sawyer. Sawyer had made an agreement with Moses whereby Moses would pay Sawyer a certain sum over time for his freedom, and when it was all paid his freedom papers would be given to him.
Sawyer's business fell on hard times and he had to sell off some 18 slaves, his share of the swamp, and 2 plantations. Moses was one of the slaves that Sawyer kept. Moses was made to work the fields with the rest of the slaves after this. Life was difficult, harsh, and often dangerous. Moses was forced to endure continuing hardship of seeing his wife abused and could not say anything about it for fear of being beaten or worse.
He often saw others beaten, sometimes to death. Moses did his work to the best of his ability, and it was hard work. He was not used to such hard field labor, and the rations served were so small that he was starving. After 8 months working in the fields, he went to his master and told him that he could not stand being in the fields.
When his master asked why, Moses said it was because of the harsh overseer supervisor in the field who would not give them enough food to keep them from starving. Sawyer agreed to have the overseer give each slave an extra pint of meal or corn each evening that would serve them the next day until breakfast which didn't come until noon. Sawyer gave Moses a signed paper saying he would take that amount for his freedom. Moses then hired a horse and set off for Norfolk, to see some of the employers with whom he had worked in his youth.
The first one he met with, Captain Edward Minner, agreed to provide the full amount and the next day went with Moses back to Camden to procure his release from Sawyers service.

Upon finding Sawyer, Sawyer refused to let Moses go. Minner showed the paper to Sawyer and others present, as Sawyer was at Major Farrance's, at the cross canal.
