Re: Slave Trader's Names
In Response To: Slave Trader's Names ()


Might try Birch Slave Pen in Alexandria, Va for starters.

Birch Slave Pen Alexandria Used for 33 years before the Civil War by slave dealers (1828-1861), the building (a National Historic Landmark) at 1315 Duke Stree, Alexandria, VA, is a symbol of America's internal slave trade to the Deep South, and was thus acquired by the Northern VA Urban League for adaptive reuse.

There is a connection to Richmond , VA & a Lewis Robards out of Lexington, KY who was a slave trader.
Lewis Robards

A couple of other sites that may be of some help

SC Slave Traders

Virginia Slave Trade

These Slave Auctions may have 'traders' listed in their advertisments.
