Re: the Gibson Indians
In Response To: Re: the Gibson Indians ()
Paul - do you have any more information on the people being illegally held? Is there documentation of these individuals being held illegally, especially Arthur?
Not to go totally off on a tangent, but... in the case in question there are six slaves that are unaccounted for between the time of Eggborn's death and the chancery case. I believe five of them were the Amager family. Any thoughts on that?
Also, at the time of the case, Arthur was married to a woman named Abby and they had four children. None of them are recorded in the suit. Any suggestion where I might find them? I presume that they were on another plantation in the (extended?) Eggborn family? We do know that Arthur's daughter, who was my gggrandmother, Tabitha, was enslaved.
