Description

Selected images of pages from two journals kept by James T. Jones for agricultural land in Fluvanna County, Virginia for the period 1831-1851. The images show pages from manuscript collection 1247, Box 4, folders 4-1 and 4-2.

Depicted on these pages are handwritten entries with the names of individuals, plus dates and details, under the title of "Loss Time of Hands" for the years 1832, 1833, 1834, 1841, 1842, and 1843.

The U.S. Censuses for 1850 and 1860 show that James T. Jones of Fluvanna County, Virginia enslaved 22 persons and 10 persons, respectively. The individuals named on these images are likely to be persons enslaved by Jones between 1832-1843.

Individuals named on these pages include [Fountaine] Humphrey, Ellis, William, Buff (or Biff), Judy, Matilda, Fanny, Jack, and Sam.

The Jones property was known as "the old Jones place" and later as the "Marvin Payne Property". It was located near the Monticello Dam and Rivanna River in Fluvanna County.
