These antebellum estate inventories and appraisals generally included all the deceased person’s “property,” including enslaved persons. Only those names are documented here for historical and genealogical purposes. Anyone interested in the actual property owned by the deceased may find it at the link at the bottom of the page. NOTE: The lists of enslaved persons have been alphabetized for ease of search, but order within the list can give information about family groups. See the link to the digitized inventory to see the original order.
