I'm not so sure that what was meant had anything to do with them being freed. From what I know, to enumerate simply means "to count", meaning that at some point he had counted the slaves he mentioned. I remember that the abstract did mention in several sentences that at least several slave families lived in their own separate sections of the plantation down near the ferry landing, and I am wondering if those are the families you mentioned in the part you just quoted? I agree, though, that it would be nice if abstractors would leave in important words in a document, but unfortunately, there are quite a few of them that only give names of the family members, with no descriptions as to relationships even. These particular will abstractions for Warren Co. were extremely well done in that they actually gave the names of the slaves, while many other abtracted records done earlier for Bute & Warren Co. contain nothing but the word "negro" when a slave name was mentioned.
