Liberty County Estate Inventory – Henry H. Delegal

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.  Names are listed in the original order, as this often gives very valuable information about family groupings or the age of children (who may be listed in age order).
