Description

At various points between January 1804 and January 1806, Georgetown College hired the time of six slaves from Ann Fenwick. Their names were Phill, Steven, Lewis, Charles, Stashay, and George.

According to the ledger, Lewis spent some time in jail in 1804. It is possible that he remained in jail, as he was not hired again in 1805.

Phill appears to have died while working for the College, as Fenwick was charged $14 for "Coffin & Buring Ground for Phill" in August 1804.
