Well-known local African woman buried in the churchyard

Dinah McIntire, aged around 100 years old, was buried at Saint James. She was often referred to as “Dinah the Fortune Teller.” Enslaved since birth in Maryland, she was for some time the property of Col. Matthias Slough, a Revolutionary War veteran, a member of Saint James and innkeeper of the White Swan Tavern, Lancaster. She is known to have owned property on West Vine Street, which the community referred to as Dinah’s Hill.
