Cancer Plantation Slaves
Robert Councillor Carter owned many tobacco plantations. The Lower Bull Run Tract (Cancer Plantation located in Manassas Virginia) later called Liberia was one of these. We are trying to locate slave ancestors of this plantation. We have Cancer slaves first names from Carter's 1791 manumission papers but are looking for any ancestors. This plantation was given to Carter's granddaughter Harriet Bladen Mitchell Weir and her husband William J. Weir. The plantation house was also called Liberia, The Brick House, or Weir's House.
