Slaves of George M. Weatherall

This page's purpose is to record and try to identify the enslaved people held by George M Weatherall (1788-1852). Note: the censuses cover both South Carolina and Mississippi; George moved sometime between 1830 and 1840.

Enslaved named in Will of Adam Crain Jones

In Adam Jones' will written in 1812 (transcription here), Adam states the following: "I give and bequeath to my grandson George Weatherall, son of my daughter Betsy Weatherall one negro boy named Sam, son of Sam and Prisse and to receive the same at my death." (Presumably this means George is to inherit the boy Sam at the time of the writing of the will (1812), and inherit the parents Sam and Prisse after Adam's death(1815)?)
