do you have any other data?  possible origin, in which century, decade...

English is not my language so I had to look for the meaning of Indentured Servants: "noun, American History.
1.
a person who came to America and was placed under contract to work for another over a period of time, usually seven years, especially during the 17th to 19th centuries. Generally, indentured servants included redemptioners, victims of religious or political persecution, persons kidnapped for the purpose, convicts, and paupers."

why do you think your possible ancestor came like indentured servant?
