WH Goldthwaite 1863 AL Coosa Slave Inventory

Just posting a slave inventory that I came across while researching Coosa Probate records. William H. Goldwaite was a single young man of 26 in the 1860 census who held 85 slaves. In the 1850 census William is attending a boarding school in Bridgeport, CT. He almost certainly inherited these slaves from an ancestor, most likely someone in neighboring Montgomery County. I don't know why he died and I don't know who his parents were. In the 1870 census there are about 40 AA individuals born before 1860 with the Goldthwaite surname, all in the town of Nixburg in Coosa County. Without doing too much hardwork it looks like at least 10 are easy matches to individuals in the slave inventory.
