Marion County Wills - Slave Data

 

Wills of slaveholders mention little more than a slave's name and sex but occasionally family groups / relationships are specified. You'll also want to review Estate records which will often list slaves in groups and provide clues as to age and skills by "appraised value". The grouping in estate records is interesting, and it may provide clues on family relationship.

The list below is to give you some idea of what may be found in Wills and Estate records. For a complete list of Marion County Wills, see the Wills page.
