According to the Pennsylvania Slave act of 1789? a slave would be free on their 26th birthday. Jupiter and Dolly would have been free at the time of the act. The three sons of Jupiter would be free by law as follows; Ned in 1800, Reuben in 1802 and Nace unknown but no later than 1807. I am not sure if the tax records of Greene County are available for the early 1800's they may have your answer. The Fayette County records are available at the Uniontown Library on microfilm. The Greene County may be available at a Waynesburg Library. They were microfilmed by the Mormons and they would have a copy if they still exist.
