Liberty County Estate Inventory – Joseph Hargreaves

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.

  1. This extensive listing of enslaved people simply shows the magnitude and depth of this owner’s real and chattel property…that he needed (or wanted) such a large labor force. And the names, a mix of biblical, English, Spanish, and African origins bring these people to LIFE. Thank you!
