This page serves to document and further the research of enslaved individuals held by slave owner David Gwin Talbott (1761-1853) of Campbell County, Virginia.

David’s 1850 will[1] does not name the enslaved people, nor does he will them to particular children. All it says is: "The land and Negroes to be laid off in Lotts and impartially be drawn for by them." I have not found a follow-up sale recording.

(Though David was given an indentured servant/slave named Oliver, due to be free when he was 21- it’s doubtful it’s the same person, unless the wrong age category was checked off. In David’s father Charles’ 1779 will, Oliver was a boy, so by 1830 Oliver would have been over 50 years old)
