Releasing Moses, Bartlett, Henry Umy, Isom, Sal, Isaac, Celia & Reuben, Scott County, KY 1793

NOTE: SCGS Genealogy Jamboree opens tomorrow and I will be blogging about it on Friday and Saturday. However, posts won’t go up until sometime in the evening instead of my usual 6:00 a.m. time. Friday’s Family History Finds will post on Sunday, also late, as I will be on the road back to Arizona.

While looking for Holland and Thompson data in Scott County, Kentucky, I came across the inventory of the estate of Samuel Thomas, recorded in the October 1793 court term minutes. Ann Thomson was the administratrix. Although Samuel Thomas’s name is clearly written, because it is so similar to Thomson, I’m not sure of Samuel’s surname, but I will leave that for others to follow up.

Note that the Thompson surname is spelled as Thompson, Thomson, Thomason and Thomison just in this one document.

The complete inventory isn’t that long, but I am only going to transcribe the portion relating to the enslaved people.
