PENNSYLVANIA, Westmoreland County: Register of Slaves (1782)

A woman who has not given me permission to use her name messaged my genealogy Facebook page regarding  a book about Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, included many named slaves. I am releasing their names in two separate posts; this is the second.

The following is an excerpt from Old and New Westmoreland by John Newton Boucher originally published in 1918 and now available online.

"The following list gives the names of the slaveholders of our county. They were among our best people.

A LIST OF NEGRO AND MULATTO SLAVES

Registered in Westmoreland County pursuant to an Act of Assembly of the State of Pennsylvania, entitled "An act for the gradual abolition of slavery," passed the 1st day of March AD 1780, and to an Act of Assembly entitled "An act to redress certain grievances within the counties of Westmoreland and Washington," passed the 13th day of April AD 1782.

The date of entry is first given, then the names of owners, followed by the sex, age and name of the slave."

[Note: Page 204 is not available as part of the free portion of Unforgotten Books. I have alphabetized the list by surname of the slaveowner; the list is in chronological order in the text.]
