Slave Records in Kentucky

collected by P. A. Miller

These are the slave records from my research on Kentucky families.
I've generally cleaned these records out to only include names (whether they receive named slaves in will or not).
There are tax lists and other records indicating numbers of slaves only - they still represent people and can help determine ages of known slaves.
I've left in auxiliary references that might include slave names, even though I didn't take them down in my notes.
These family names are not always all the same branch, I've noted where certain ones came from or went to, etc.
The records are not in date order.
I haven't cleaned up source name abbreviations, etc., but I think they are obvious. Some sources start with the LDS film number.
My comments about the records are in [brackets]
Contact me if you have any questions at:

(Sorry, have to copy by hand, the harvester-spammers have gotten to be too much.)

N.B. The Prince Goode in many of these records, owned by John Goode, is first listed in the tax records of John's father Edward in Mecklenburg VA .

[N.B. Trigg County was cut from Christian, some of this family information continues in the Trigg section below.]

The James Daniel in these records came from Person NC.
The John Goode family came from Mecklenburg VA through Rutherford County NC.

G82 affidavit of James Daniel recd 2 Sep 1816: I James Daniel do swear that my removal to the St of Ky was with an intention to become a Citizen thereof and that I have brought with me no slave or slaves and will bring no slave or slaves with an intent of selling them. James Daniel (seal)

Christian co Ky Tax Lists 1804-1823. [4 books, 3-4 yrs each] by A. B. Willhite
The James Daniel listed here came from Person NC in about 1814, settling in Cerulean Springs. He brought his sons, some of whom (Elijah, George, John) are listed below. Two of James' slaves, Bob and Rachel, are listed in his will below.
The Elijah Daniel listed here is one of James Daniel's sons; he died in Trigg County in 1822 and his estate (included on this page) names his slaves.
There was also another James Daniel family in Christian/Trigg who arrived earlier than the James Daniel covered in these records. They settled in the southern area at Roaring Springs. Because they are so easily distinguishable from my James Daniel I unfortunately did not take their info from these lists.

[I added to the above book info from LDS films 7926 and 7927. For this page I've removed the stock and personal property numbers.]
[John Goode freed Prince Goode in Trigg on 10 April 1822, the day before he wrote his will. I decided to include these tax records because it is possible to trace Prince through them and watch the manumission, etc. Unfortunately, when I was extracting these records I stopped taking the numbers for all but my direct ancestor so Prince's children are not determinable from my notes. I have included the names even if they had no slaves, because some of them inherited slaves named in the wills later. I've also included acreage and watercourse to help locate the families.]
[I also have available the Coy slave data from these lists and some from Hardin and Caldwell counties, but have omitted as I have not identified slave names for the family.]

Tax Lists for Trigg - Goode and Daniel entries
N.B. Trigg was cut from
Christian County in 1822 and these tax lists continue the info as shown in that county's data.
[I decided to include these because it is possible to trace Prince Goode through them and watch the manumission, etc. Unfortunately, when I was extracting these records I stopped taking the numbers for all but my direct ancestor so Prince's children are not determinable from my notes. I have included the names even if they had no slaves, because some of them inherited slaves named in the wills later. I've also included acreage and watercourse to help locate the families.]
[I also have available the Coy slave data from these lists and some from Hardin and Caldwell counties, but have omitted as I have not identified slave names for the family.]
