The inventory of Francis Kerby's estate, and records of the sale of that estate, list the following enslaved people.

Kerby's widow, Christianna, purchased some of these people at the estate sale. After slavery in Maryland was abolished in 1864, each county compiled a list of who had owned slaves (in the hope that owners would be compensated by the federal government). Several of these people, and likely their descendants, were declared by Christianna's son James P. Kerby in 1867-1868. [1]
