Slave Document, 1823, Madison County Kentucky, "slaves Value" For Sale

Slave Document, 1823, Madison County Kentucky,

1 pg. document, February 3, 1823, Madison County [Kentucky] that allots (values) four named slaves toward the Dowry of Eliza Clayton. Signed by three court appointed persons-- Silas Tribble, William Wells, and John Wheeler-- to value the slaves. Docketed and signed on the reverse by David Irvine (as Clerk of the County Court). The document reads, in part: "In conformity to order of the County Court of Madison awarded at their July term 1822 appointing the undersigned to allot Eliza Clayton widow of John Clayton Decd. her Dowry [we] met on the 30th Oct, 1822 at the late Dwelling of said decedent... [and] allotted the widow her Dowry of the negroes according to their real value and their annual value. We allotted the said widow a negro man named Harry at $800, a negro woman named Rachel at $500, a negro girl named Margaret at $200, and a negro girl named Eliza at $400 making $1,920 which leaves a balance of $133.33 behind of said widow's dowry of the negroes, etc...." David Irvine (1796-1872), who dockets and signs the reverse side of this document, was the son of Colonel William Irvine. The Colonel came to Kentucky from Virginia when a young man and served in a Kentucky Regiment in the War of 1812. The Colonel served in the Kentucky legislature and was the president of the Constitutional convention that made Kentucky a state. He was also the first clerk of both the County and Circuit Courts of Madison County, KY. David Irvine, who was serving as deputy under his father, succeeded his father as Circuit and County clerk upon his death, serving until 1847. He too served in the War of 1812, although still in his early teens. He and his brothers served in the Maumee campaign and his brother, Christopher Irvine, was killed at the battle of Maumee. David served in both the Kentucky House of Reps. and the Kentucky Senate. He died at Richmond, KY at age 76. David's sister-in-law was the sister of Cassius M. Clay and the daughter of General Green Clay. His son-in-law was General Addison White of Huntsville, Ala.. The document is irregularly cut, but complete and in very good condition.
