Birth: 1816
Maryland, USA
Death: Oct. 26, 1874
Baltimore City
Maryland, USA

Martha Ann Atavis (MSA SC 5496-51279) was born a slave. Patty Ann", as she was often called, was the property of William McCubbin of Baltimore. McCubbin was a small slave owner having two slaves who were both disabled (Patty and another slave girl named Phebe). McCubbin died in 1839 without a will. When his property was appraised Patty was valued at $180.00. McCubbin's widow Ruth sold Patty to Dr. John Whitridge of Baltimore for $200.00. Patty was sent to live at Whitridge's home on Gay Street. The Whitridge family later moved to 49 N. Charles Street. It's not known if Patty moved with them to this location.

Patty worked 36 years as a nurse for the Whitridge family. In 1866, John Whitridge wrote his will which included a $100.00 annual bequest to Patty. But, Patty died before Whitridge and subsequently wasn't present when his will was probated in 1878.
