Abstract:

This collection is composed of financial and legal papers of the Howerton family of Halifax County, Va. Papers from 1817-1858 pertain chiefly to Philip Howerton (ca. 1790-ca. 1870), planter and local government official. These early papers document Howerton's official activities, and consist primarily of receipts, tax lists of various kinds, and materials relating to the imprisonment of insolvent debtors. Data on insolvent debtors reveals economic conditions in Halifax County in various times, indicating that insolvency was a cause for emigration elsewhere. Many items refer to slaves, including tax lists, mortgages on slaves, and references to individual slaves who came in contact with the criminal justice system.
