Description

The Maryland Province Jesuits did not sell all of their slaves to Louisiana in 1838, disposing of several to local buyers and maintaining a handful on their own plantations. Rev. Joseph Carbery, SJ, the Jesuit manager of St. Inigoes, identified the local buyers of nine St. Inigoes slaves in an oath before the clerk of the St. Mary's County levy court. Hand Dorsey purchased Michael, Joe, Regis, Alexis, & Zekiel, William Smith purchased "Young Harry" and Bet or Bety, and Col. Joseph Harris purchased Gabe..
