The inventory of Thompson Glen’s estate, dated December 21, 1822. Those that are listed are: 1 Negro man Sam. The name following his, is illegible. However, it’s believed that it is the female slave named Justin. Following her is “1 old crippled woman Delce, 1 old crippled man Charles, 1 girl & 1 woman Susannah ( which were, Sukey and her daughter Patsy), 1 woman Rachael, 1 girl Nancy, 1 old man Nathan, 1 girl name Sally, 1 boy Phillip and 1 boy Alfred.
We are displaying the Wilson County, Tennessee 1830 Federal Census for Thompson Glen’s widow, Martha (Patsy Clarissa) Glen to provide some ideal of the ages of the slaves that were named in the previous inventory.
Given that their are no elderly male slaves listed above, it’s assumed that the old crippled man named Charles had passed away. However, that thought doesn’t apply to Sam or the female slave named Justin, because they more than likely went to live among one of Thompson Glen’s other children.
