Abstract

This bond lists Nathan Southern, Hilary Hurst, and Joseph Lawhorn as indebted to the State of Tennessee in the amount of $50.00 each to secure the appearance of Anderson, an enslaved person, before the court on December 19, 1856 to face a misdemeanor charge.

Biographical/Historical Note

Anderson was an enslaved person belonging to Nancy (Neil) Southern (1781-1857). Southern owned three enslaved persons in 1850: one woman aged 65, one man aged 34, and one boy aged 12. If Anderson is the 34 year old man, it is possible that he later immigrated to Virginia and settled in Prince Edward County.
