Voucher 566

December 1862, C. Green Duff, as Quarter Master was the overseer and possible owner of 64 slaves (numbered 63-126) loaned out as laborers to Captain Charles T. Lieurner of the Corps of Engineers. The Voucher indicates $949.00 was paid to Duff C. Green.[1]

"This payroll acknowledges that Captain Charles T. Lieurner of the Corps of Engineers paid C. Green Duff, Quartermaster General, for work performed by certain slaves as laborers on the the Choctaw Bluff Batteries, Alabama, during December 1862. This payroll consists of a single sheet with slaves numbered from 63 to 126, as follows:

Research Note

In the Dog River Channel Payroll and this one, the numbering system does not go from 1-63 or 1-64. They start at a higher number. Since both of these payrolls begin in December 1862 with the same quarter master, it might be worthwhile to see if the other payrolls similar to these have a beginning to this system.
