Description

In the summer of 1838, the clerk of the levy court of St. Mary's County deducted from Joseph Carbery's tax burden the value of three slaves who had passed away the previous year: John, Lydia, and Ned Dorsey. All three individuals appear in both the 1821 and 1831 tax censuses. John would have been 32 years old, Lydia 24, and Dorsey 28. Rev. Carbery was the manager of the Jesuits' St. Inigoes Plantation.
