List of Enslaved People Owned by Richard Eppes

A plantation account book kept by Richard Eppes, of Appomattox Manor at City Point, lists by name the enslaved people he owned, as well as their dates of birth and, in a few cases, when they died. This is the first of a three-page listing of Eppes's slaves, which numbered more than eighty when he assumed control of his estates in 1851.
