Re: Slave Classification???
In Response To: Slave Classification??? ()

Hi Linda,
I can't answer your question, but I assume (and it ain't good to assume) that "first class" or "second class" was used to describe their health and working ability. I could be wrong. Maybe someone can confirm or correct this.

But, I have a question. A possible slave-owner died in Jefferson County before the Civil War. Was it difficult obtaining those pre-Civil War records for Jefferson County?

Thanks,
Mel
