Slave Name Roll Project

Created: February 28, 2015

The Slave Name Roll Project celebrated its first success earlier this year. 

31 Aug 2016--Read about it on Opening Doors in Brick Walls: Releasing Jinney, Aaron, Hannah, James, Peggy, and Abby

As a way to give back to my fellow African-American genealogists, I am going through my ancestors wills and property records and posting any information about a named slave I find. If you would like to join me in the Slave Name Roll Project, simply submit a comment to this post which includes a link to your roll and I will it include on this page.

Going forward I will repost this page as a reminder on the first day of Black History Month though I'll take your links any time.

I would like to thank Cathy Meder-Dempsey of Opening Doors in Brick Walls because her post for Black History month (parts 12 and 3) gave me the idea. I would also like to thank Heather Wilkinson Rojo of Nutfield Genealogy, who generously let me steal her Honor Roll Project concept.

  2. Hi! I also don't have a blog. May I release the names that I have found so far? Thank you!

    I am releasing 11 named slaves owned by my 3rd great grandmother, Sarah Griffith Gassaway (b. 1776 Anne Arundel, Maryland – 7 Feb 1858 Woodstock, Howard, Maryland, USA). She is the daughter of Brice John Gassaway (1745-1816) and Dinah “Kitty” Warfield (1755-1805) both of Maryland, is the widow of Lieut. John Riggs Brown (1775-1814) of Woodstock, Maryland. Sarah Griffith Gassaway and John Riggs Brown were married 14 Dec 1797 in Anne Arundel, Maryland. Her will was written in Howard County, Maryland and was dated 15 Feb 1855. In it she leaves 11 slaves to family members, as follows. The use and spellings of the words “negro” and “negroes” is taken directly from her will.

    To her son, Henry G Brown, she gave and bequeathed her “negro” boy ISAAC and her “negro” girl MARY ANN.

    To her son, Samuel Brown, she gave and bequeathed her “negro” boy ALEXANDER.

    To her son, John R Brown, she gave and bequeathed her “negroes” LEWIS, GEORGE, MARIA and LUCRETIA.

    To her daughter, Louisa W Davis, she gave and bequeathed her “negro” boy PETER.

    To her daughter, Mary Ann Smith, she gave and bequeathed her “negro” girl LOUISA.

    To her daughter, Elizabeth Gorman, she gave and bequeathed her “negro” girl AIRY.

    To her daughter, Kitty Ann Hood, she gave and bequeathed her “negro” boy Rezin.

    Thank you! Sincerely, Elizabeth Shea Mohler Combs

  4. Here is an excerpt from the will of my 6th great grandfather, Samuel Patton (1755-1822) in Oglethorpe County, Georgia.

    Samuel Patton, dated 16 February 1817, recorded 10 May 1822

    I lend to my beloved wife Mary Patton until my youngest child comes of age, should she continue a widow, the land and plantation whereon I now live, with all my negroes .... And when my youngest child comes of age, I lend to my wife during her natural life, one negro of her own having one bed and furniture... I give to my son, Samuel one negro boy named Bob in lieu of all and every part of my estate.


    Here is an excerpt of a will that was on the same page as the will above for Martha Whitsell, also in Oglethorpe County, Georgia.

    Martha Whitsell, dated 16 January 1822, recorded 10 May 1822.
    Having given to my brother James Whitsell two negroes (viz) Iris and Cynthia, one horse named Ball, and two cows, one sow and five pigs...

  10. Hi, I have been compiling names of enslaved people in Boone County, KY, along with any related information (including DOB, Associated families, sources, etc.) It started with in-depth Underground Railroad reaearch, and has grown as much as time will allow. This is an ongoing project, but we currently have over 2,000 entires in our database. The goal is to get past the biggest brick wall of all in genealogy- pre-emancipation. Here is the current link, but it may soon change with an upgrade. Contact me if you have questions or trouble accessing the information:

  14. From the will of Thomas Warfield of Frederick County Maryland:

Her head stone reads: "Delilah Warfield wife of Thomas Warfield died 16 november 1841, aged 82 years, 9 mos and 4 days". According to the press, he died on October 17, 1855, in his 85th year.
     
    His will, dated June 11, 1855, was probated in Frederick County on October 31st, following:
     
    To his negro servant Harry Roberts he devised 5 acres of "Warfield's Good Luck".
    To his nephew Thomas Warfield Simpson son of Warfield Simpson 50 shares in Frederick Co. Bank.
