Re: [MS] Jefferson County Slave Court Records
In Response To: [MS] Jefferson County Slave Court Records ()
Jefferson County, MS, is one of my counties of research. I have read the slave court records, have not found a case which connects to my family. Hanging and 39 lashes appear to be the common mode of punishment for crimes from petit larceny to murder.
The cases are insightful. The cases may be read at the site below.
