Annual valuations were required to protect the interest of minor heirs when real property was involved. Information abstracted here contains orphans and decedents names; locations and description of property; dimensions and condition of the buildings thereon; slaves; appraisers names; date property was viewed; value placed upon it and the date the report was filed.
A brief discussion of this book is planned for the September General Meeting.
