Baskerville & Nelson Cole estate records/deeds

My cousin Musa Eubanks sent me five files that include records,and history of our families connection to the Baskerville and Nelson Cole. There's too many files to list everything, but below is a bit of info. However, if anyone is interested in the following names, please let me know.
Fanny (mother) gave birth to a daughter Sally in 1787.
1805 Sallie (about 17 years old) had her 1st child Lucindy or later spelled Lucinda. According to a deed of indentures signed April 13, 1811, Nelson Cole owed William and Charles Baskerivlle so much money that everything he owned was put into hock sort of speak, from beds to slaves. At that time the deed says Nelson owed William and Charles Baskerville of the second part and John Hutchenson (others are listed) the sum of two hundred and seventy three pounds eight shillings and nine pence. In the deed it says that he bargained and sold ...corn , fodder, ...one negro man named James, one ditto named Sandy, one named Edmund, one boy named Isaac, one ditton named Phil, one ditto Zack, Jack, Lucy Cottin, Lucy Clark, and her two children named Cynthia, and Matilda, Lizz, and her child Patty Anne, Sally and her two children Lucindy and Eliza, Nancy, and her child Fanny, and Hannah and every other speices of property whatsoever...etc.
Nelson Cole also signed another deed of indenture on May 5, 1812 owing even more money. To make a long story short, that is how the Baskerville eventually acquired my ancestors Fanny and Sally and any future children of Sally.
Sally's other children were: Eliza born between 1808 - 1811, Cluck (boy)1812, 1814 Fanny 2,1815 Charity, 1817 Martha, Amanda, and Nelson in 1818 who was born shortly after Nelson Cole's death. Nelson Cole did not have a will. However, 1819 the court appointed Charles Baskerville the Administrator of Cole's estate. Aroung 1824 Sally gave birth to Mary. Mary years later married Edmund Hudson (this family is listed in the 1870 census for Mecklenburg VA) gave birth to Eliza, my great grandmother. Eliza Married Hartwell Eubanks.

Side Info - March 26, 1804 Nelson Cole emancipates one of his slaves named Alan, said to have hazel eyes and light complexion. I do not know if he was a son of Sally but it is worth noting perhaps for some researcher. On the 17th of March 1819, Alan is listed in the Mecklenburg County Register of Free Negroes.
In 1820 Lucinda was hired out to work for Mrs. Sarah Cook.
1824 Sally Martha and Amanda to E.B Hicks. There's more but I will stop here. If any of the names are of interest to you. Please
e-mail me.
