SLAVE DOCUMENTATION IN PROBATE PAPER RECORDS OF GREENE COUNTY*

[Other records used to amend census.]

Probate records contain information that is usually divided into manageable types. Slaves are listed on inventories, appraisement sheets, and sometimes sales bills. On all three may appear name, gender, and age. On the latter two appear an estimated value and an actual realized cash value. Wills also might provide name, gender, and more rarely age and value information. Marsha Hoffman Rising's Greene County, Missouri Probate Records: Wills, Minutes, Bonds, Letters of Administration 1833-1871 contains a valuable index of alphabetical name listings of slaves mentioned in these records.

Probate files often contain very valuable information jotted down on the smallest and least important looking scraps of paper. This small bits, often torn from larger sheets, could contain accounts for medical service, records of slave hires, receipts for goods bought for slaves, or record which family members received which slaves as inheritance.

The following names were initially gathered from probate files in Greene County. Since the first draft of this census, records have been added from Deed Books [both from Greene and Jasper Counties,] Justice of the Peace books, Marriage Indexes, Federal Census Records, the 1936 City/County Negro Directory for Greene and Jasper Counties and towns therein, the 1918 Honor Roll Book with World War I military personnel from Greene County, Militia-1866 Christian County, Missouri [published by the Christian County Museum & Historical Society,] Polk County 1865-1880 marriage records of "Persons of Color," and other sources.

The first listing below is set up by the following format. The first column contains the given name of slave beside the owner's name. The second column give the Greene County probate file number and year probate began. The approximate age or ages of slave listed in documents is the third column. Where ages are not listed the value column [far right] may be helpful in determining an approximate age. Where listed or reasonably presumed, gender is listed in the fourth column. Values were taken from appraisement sheets, sales bills, and other documents. Often there will be more than one amount listed.

Administration of probate for a deceased person might continue over a number of years. This will explain why sometimes ages given may vary. Files should be consulted when needed.

Unless otherwise noted, the 1870 Census notations refer only to the Greene County, Missouri, portion of that record.

Italicized text represents annotation drawn from probate and other sources.

"Pictorial and Genealogical" refers to the book Pictorial and Genealogical Record of Greene County Missouri. Chicago: Goodspeed Brothers, Publishers, 1893.
