Re: Slaves in Will of THOMAS EATON - Died 1809 Warren Co.,NC

Deloris,
I have to share some very interesting information
with you in respect to the Will of Thomas Eaton
of Warren county, NC. When you sent me the Abstract
Will, I immediately purchased a copy of the Abstracts
of Wills Warren County, NC 1779-1844. You and I
both noted how detailed the listing was for the
slaves on the abstract will. After corresponding
with Patricia, the anthropologist, I received the
Thomas Eaton Will in its original form. I merely
perused through it until I found my ancestors names
and did not read the will in its entirety. This pass
week I was reviewing all the information as well
as correspondence that I had gather on the Eaton
reseach thus far. I read the Will that Patricia
sent to me and this is what I saw:

I give and devise to my son William Eaton his
heirs and assigns for ever all that tract of
land on the south side of the river known by the
name of the ferry plantation, lying on the west
side of great stone house creek, but not to include
the long old field which is past of the tract
called Curde's, containing about two thousand
two hundred acres, also all my land on the north
side of the river opposite the ferry containing
about twelve hundred acres, and the following
negroe slaves, with their increase from the 19th
day of February 1804, on which day I had them
enumerated (to wit). Old Ned, etc.....

This was the original version. I stop just at the
list of slaves to include my ancestors. I can
understand the removal of sentences and some of
the verbage to make an abstract but I was surprise
to learn that the author of the abstract book would
choose to remove the word ENUMERATED from the will.
That changes the whole concept of the slaves
listed.
So I am now researching for any reference to my
ancestors via census prior to 1870. I have found
someone name Branch but not sure if this is the
same person that I am searching for. I have also
checked In Full Force And Virtue, by William L Byrd,
but no such luck there.
I just thought I would share this information for
perhaps if someone else were to look at the abstracts
and assume that all the important words were still
in the abstracts may still want to check the original
Will.
Thank you once again! Allen
