Biography: 

These African Americans are among the people in attendance at the Episcopal Church when Rosa distributes money and mules. In his narrative, Bayard refers to them as "the dozen niggers that had got free by accident and didn't know what to do about it" (84). Along with Ringo, they sit in the church's "slave gallery," which was built to hold 200 slaves, but now is otherwise deserted.
