Re: Women, Wives and Widows
In Response To: Women, Wives and Widows ()

Very good info!

So now then if a minor or un-wed daughter recieved slaves from her fathers estate and she marries the slaves were automatically turned over as property of the husband. Therefore we cannot always assume that a lot of slaves in a man's possession were either bought or inherited, but we should always be sure to research his wifes history as well.
