Archaeologists from the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration found four more clay tobacco pipe stems in the slave quarter at Belvoir and they sent the pipe stems for DNA test in a lab at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

A doctor at the University of Copenhagen also tested the pipe stems and found that the woman could be related to Mende people living in present day Sierra Leone in West Africa.
