I wasn't able to decipher 3 of the 15 Slaves names.

This Estate file has many Dates. I will go by the date for now as to what I can see. 

This only furthers my curiosity as to their ages and when they were possibly born? For Instance, Joe is 68 years old......and a 7 month old baby only worth 150.00 Dollars?

Putting him possibly in the 1780 time frame.  
Ivey's have a long history with Slavery.

After Post #4, I will give a Summary of my Thoughts and Questions about these Slaves with this Family.

I had to break the Will & Appraisement down into 4 parts to understand it. 

This will make me look further into what was happening for Barna Ivey while he was a child? What led up to him having these Slaves?

Possibly answer what happened to his Estate afterwards?

Where did these Slaves go?

For the 15 Slaves mentioned here. We Speak Your Names.....

Charles. Addison. Joe. Clara. Tempa. Emaline. Sella. Lucinda. Lu Ann. Early. Peter. Wesley. Almira. Henrietta.

 The 3 I haven't been able to decipher the handwriting. Hopefully someone will come along and help me Name you as well.We will hold you in Remembrance as well.

Rest my Dear Slaves....you are always on my mind and in my heart. 

See you all soon for Part 4.

Thanks for following along. 

Best Regards, True!



SideNote: Adjustment for 
Slave 5:     Tampe/Tempe* (Temperance) 
Slave 6:     Ciril/Civil*  
Slave 14:   Almira*

My BlogSisters Cathy & Wendy along with Teresa
 BrotherBlogger TA  after posting. They helped lend their Observations of the Names of 3 Slaves I couldn't decipher, plus Joc/Joe*

Where the * is. 

We are all in consensus with a few others. Until further investigation or knowledge of them comes about. I will account for their Names as we agreed on. 

Collaboration in the Genealogy was much needed. When you look at Documents so long sometimes you can't see straight. This is where the GenCommunity comes in handy. Which is dandy! Personal Thanks to my Geneabloggers for the help with 2nd eyes!
