    McMahan - Rose, MO, 1856, Bill of Sale for a Negro Slave - "Henry"

    Ozarks Genealogical Society
    Vol. XVI, #4, Winter, 1994

    In 1930, Almond O. Young, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. N. Young, had in his possession an old document, a bill-of-sale, for a negro slave. The document reads as follows:
    "We, John F. McMahan and Joseph McMahan, administrators of the Estate of James McMahan, deceased, late of Wright county, Missouri, have this day bargained and sell unto Kindred Rose of Greene county, Missouri, a negro slave, named, HENRY for the sum of one thousand and twenty-five dollars to us in hand paid, the receipt whereof is hereby acknowedged. The age of said negro slave, HENRY, is about nineteen years. We warrant the said negro slave, HENRY, to be sound, sensible, healthy and a slave for life. We covenant with the said, Kindred Rose, that we are lawfully possessed, as administrators of the Estate of James McMahan, deceased, of the said negro slave, HENRY; and have full power and authority to bargain and sell said negro slave as willfully appear by reference to the proceedings of the Probate {sic} Court of Wright county, Missouri, hereunto annexed and made a part of this bill-of-sale. And we further covenant and bind ourselves, our heirs and representatives to warrant and forever defend the right and title of said negro slave, HENRY, unto said Kindred Rose, his heirs and representatives and assigns forever against the lawful claim or claims of all persons, whatever. Given under hands and seals, May {sic} the 7th, 1856.​

    Brother Info ... thanks for sharing!

    You should create an album, and add these images to it, so they can show up occasionally on the site.

    Brother WARRIOR has some images like these in his album, riveting stuff!

    Thanks You!

    :heart:
