CHARLOTTE COUNTY, VA-APRIL 13, 1831
DISPUTED WILL OF JOHN AND ELIZABETH TIMBERLAKE

14 Slaves listed on the 1795 Deed of John Timberlake

Jack, Joseph, Hanover, Gilbert, Sam, George, Ned, Lucy, Hannah, Judith, Nancy, Suckey, Sally and Jinney
===============================================================

This decision [April 1831] was rendered to settle the disputed estate of John and Elizabeth Timberlake (LeSuer and Tate were son-in-laws- of John and Elizabeth). This instrument states that several Slaves have already been advanced to the parties: JOHN L. LESUER has possession of two Negro girls Suckey and Nancy; CALEB TATE has Jinney and Sally; and AUGUSTINE TIMBERLAKE has a Negro woman Delphney.” Augustine Timberlake also retained the use of the land on which he lived, formerly his father’s.

[We do not know where Delphney came from she is not listed with the original 14 Slaves]

The decision [1831] states that LeSuer’s portion of the estate is deficient and orders that it be re-divided equally between the three parties with the Slaves already assigned and their increase remaining with “those who have raised them”. It also acknowledges a debt of $417.30 with interest owed from John Timberlake to LeSuer and orders it paid from the estate. As a result of this decision, the Slaves not already in possession of the parties were divided as follows: JOHN LESUER received-Allen G. [b. 1812], Sam, Martha and Betsey; CALEB TATE received- Mirah and children Hannah & Henry; and AUGUSTINE TIMBERLAKE received-Joe and Anna and her two children Liza & Nancy [my line].
