1860 Slave Documents Upson Co. Georgia

These two documents were purchased together and are related, although the names are a little different on each document and even within one document

One is a 4 1/2" x 7 " lined paper, handwritten, and gives notice to James F. White that the "negroes belonging to the estate of T.W. Reviene" will be divided on November 6, 1860, in Upson County, GA. The letter also mentions "Caroline E. White," his wife.

The other is a 5 1/2" x 7" lined paper, a 1860 Upson County notice to Caroline M. Rivene [Riveri?] that "the negroes belonging to Tho. W. Riven (?)" will be divided on November 6, 1860. The 1860 Census was the last to make notice of slaves and slaveholders.

Each document bears the signature of having received the notice: "Caroline M. Riveri" and "J. F. White."
