[MD] Slave Inventory
Prince George's County, MD Slave Inventory
This database is compiled of all references extracted from the source to slaves & indentured servants . There are inventories where the "property" was physically located in another county, Charles and Dorchester for example, but I have retained the information in this database. The names are spelled as nearly as possible as they were on the Estate inventories. Many names were spelled phonetically by the persons performing the inventories and I have tried to restrain myself from putting my interpretation of what the name is in brackets. Ages were often given as approximations. I have retained the age when given but not included the "abt" used in the inventory to save time and space. I have not included the derogatory term "boy" unless it was clear that the reference was to age. Surprisingly enough, that only occurred in one inventory. The date given is the date the inventory was completed. Some inventories did not have a date beyond the affidavit of the Executor or Administrator and that was used.
