1 Title:   Affidavits regarding importation and sale of enslaved people  Requires cookie*
  Creator:   Savannah (Ga.)  
  Dates:   1801 July 3, August 26  
The collection consists of two affidavits regarding the importation and sales of enslaved people. Sworn and sealed July 3, 1801, Camden County, Georgia, signed "David Garvin", the first affidavit respects the sale of six enslaved people (delivered in the year 1799) to John Kinnard [sic]. The second affidavit (3 pages in length) dated August 26, 1801, Savannah, consists of testimony of Savannah slave traders Hector Mitchell and Mr. Gairdner, who swore that "sometime in the year [1797] a parcel of [thirty-six enslaved people] was picked up at sea." Mitchell and Gairdner, agents for John and James McBurney, the fugitives' owners, had the runaways put in jail; an ordinance of the Savannah city council arranged their sale to David Garvin. This statement goes on to mention that John Kinnard is now the legal owner of six of the [thirty-six enslaved people] named in the earlier affidavit of July 3.
