Congrove (aka Congreve) Jackson will

November 2, 1818.  Proven July 26, 1819.

 

Submitted by Lyndon Comstock.   lyndon.comstock (at) gmail.com   I obtained this will because I thought it might mention Daniel, a 7 year old boy purchased as a slave by Congreve Jackson on December 28, 1818 in Winchester.   However the will was written prior to the purchase of Daniel.
