Abstract:

Robert A. Jones was a cotton planter and large landholder in Halifax County, N.C., where he served as treasurer of the Wardens of the Poor, and of the Roanoke Navigation Company. Jones also owned property and slaves in Bertie and Wake counties. His account book, 1817-1829, provides extensive information on his personal and household expenses and his management of his many plantations. He also managed property belonging to his ward, Willie W. Jones, of Bertie County, between 1817-1826; Willie's mother, Mary Montfort Jones, whose estate he administered after her death in 1825; and James Johnston of Halifax County, whose estate he was appointed to administer by a commission in 1823. Accounts are mostly with merchants, artisans, doctors and midwives, overseers, and laborers. The account book is a rich source on slaves and free black laborers. It provides lists of slaves by owner, notes on the hiring out of slaves, wages paid, monies lent, and goods sold to free workers. It also records charitable amounts Jones gave to free blacks and slaves.
