Slaveowner Jos. LEEMAN, AL & NC(?)

In the event that someone is researching slaves of Joseph Leeman, the following is an extraction from his will, dated 1814 from the Franklin County, NC Will Book E, page 129. According to the preface to the re-print, Leeman was in Northern Alabama in the early 1800s.

The will was re-printed in the December 2001 issue of Morgan Memories, newsletter of the Morgan County (AL) Genealogical Society.

..."I give to negro man PETER after my decease his freedom to be a freeman forever."

"I leave or give to my daughter Polly Leeman -- my negro man DICK to serve her--her life time & after her decease to be sold & the money to be equally divided amongst my sons Wm Leeman & Joseph Leeman & my daughters Nancy Powell & Peggy Patterson..."

Hope this might prove helpful to someone...
