Slaves of John and Elizabeth Weatherall

This page is to record the enslaved people on the Abbeville, South Carolina property of John Weatherall and his wifeElizabeth (Jones) Weatherall. They are sharing this space page because I think there is substantial overlap between the pair’s enslaved people, especially right after John Weatherall died. There are several documents pertaining to this group, and this page is a workspace for figuring out how these enslaved ancestors connect to today’s descendants.
