I FOUND HARRIET!!!!!!!!!!!!
But not the children - or rather, only one child, named Paul, who is not on your list.
Here is the complete list of slaves:
Bob, a man of black color aged about 45 years appraised at $1,500.00
Moses, a boy of black color aged about 35 years appraised at $2,000.00
Paul, a boy of black color aged about 40 years appraised at $1,900.00
Harriet, a woman of black color aged about 40 years and her boy child Paul aged about 8 years appraised at $3,500.00
Delia, a girl of black color aged about 13 years appraised at $2,000.00
Francis, a girl of black color aged about 15 years appraised at $2,100.00
Pete, a boy of black color aged about 33 years appraised at $2,000.00
Little Bob, a boy of black color aged about 30 years appraised at $2,500.00
Dick, a boy of black color aged about 15 years appraised at $2,000.00
Martha, a woman of black color aged about 18 years and her child "Briter" [??? - difficult to read] aged 1 year appraised at $2,000.00
Consistent with 19th-Century spelling, it is technically the succession of John Davidson.
The slaves were not sold but rather divided among the heirs. I can't quite figure out to whom Harriet went, but she, her son Paul, and the above-mentioned Dick all went together.
Terrence, I made you a bunch of copies, but my scanner isn't working and some of the paper is too big for my scanner anyway. Would you mind e-mailing me privately with your physical mailing address, and I shall be happy to send them to you.
Hope this helps!
And Vicky, thank you so much for your kind words!
