U.S., Definitive List of Slaves and Property, 1827-1828
This series consists of a list, furnished by the Secretary of State to the commission that lists slaves and property for which citizens of the United States claimed indemnification.
These lists inventory property that was taken by the British during the War of 1812; original images located at Ancestry.com.
|The following lists were transcribed from actual images found online
at Ancestry.com detailing the property taken from Georgia citizens by
the British during the War of 1812. Included in the property, of course,
were lists of the enslaved who either left or were taken by the British.
I find it a bit hard to believe that so many enslaved persons left some of these plantations because it appears as if nearly all of the enslaved left some of the plantations. Which leads me to speculate, did the planters take advantage of this reparation like many did the military pensions, by stating this "property" was stolen when it wasn't only to make money from the British?
I transcribed these lists exactly how they were found, the only changes made were in punctuation or writing out abbreviations, like "depo" which was for "depositions".
This second listing is for real property and other non-human property, like crops, cattle, etc. Again, this is for the WHOLE STATE of Georgia, not just Glynn County.
