Re: Cancer Plantation Slaves
In Response To: Re: Cancer Plantation Slaves ()

On the Carter emancipation documents, there are two documents that go hand-in-hand.

(1) Robert Carter's original 1791 handwritten list, where individuals are listed by first name, in male/female columns from youngest to oldest, children linked to mother (primarily), and a Roman numeral to indicate plantation location. [Orders, Deeds, Etc. 1789-1825, Part I, Northumberland District Court, pp. 232-237. Located at the Northumberland Courthouse, Heathville, VA] There is a transcription of this Deed of Emancipation at Manuscript Dept, Duke University Library (DK-11A(1-6)]

(2) "African Americans Emancipated by Robert Carter of Nomony Hall," compiled by John Barden (then a graduate student) from 1791 Deed of Manumission and a 1796 Addendum of African Americans remaining to be freed. Barden meticulously went through all available records and matched up individuals, producing a typed alphabetical surname list, also including individuals without surnames. [Location: Carter file, Westmoreland Co. Museum, Montross VA] Barden's unpublished dissertation (available through Proquest-UMI dissertations, can order online, about $40)covers the emancipation process in great detail, beyond Carter's death in Baltimore. An earlier posting on this subject gave ordering info on the dissertation

Having both lists allows the multiple same surnames (Dickson, Allen) in the typed list to be sorted out through the family connections indicated in the handwritten list, i.e. that X was daughter of Y, or wife of Z. It also makes possible some good guesses on the individuals on final typed list without surnames.

There are quite a number of individuals with first name only.
Here are the surnames on the list. (In my copy the bottom of one page goes from KENDARDY to the top of the next page MITCHELL. I don't know if there could be a full page of almost a hundred names between the two, but it seems odd not to have any 'L' names. I'm thinking that the researcher missed a page, although that would be at odds with the very professional work she did. I apologize to surnames between the two names for the uncertainty)

Please feel free to post here or email me directly for dates that go with names.
