Re: BEAVERS - slaveholder of Tate
In Response To: Re: Loudoun County VA slaves - transitions to free ()
Will of May 1844 - executed in 1859 (he is listed as dying at age 87 1859/60 of pneumonia) - leaving most of his property to wife Margaret - executor is Washington BEAVERS - mentions "beginning Feb 1869, from hire of Negroes William, Jim, John, Nelson, Fenton, Elijah and Sarah"
I think Nelson and Fenton are your Tate sons.
Is not clear if the other slaves were sold - you will have to look at the actual estate records
