Description

In June 1839, a little more than six months after the transport of Maryland Province slaves to Louisiana, the clerk of the levy court of St. Mary's County deducted the St. Inigoes slave community from Joseph Carbery's tax burden. A handful of the St. Inigoes slaves were sold to local masters, and the plantation retained a single female servant.
