Description

John Stoney wrote to John Kean, address to Beaufort. He had sent John nine large barrels and one flower barrel of indigo that he requested. He was not able to send it on Thursday as his enslaved people came back too late and the tide was too low. John Kean had sent him some medicine for two sick enslaved boys, but they did not seem to be doing any better.

Collection

The Liberty Hall Collection consists of the correspondence, financial records, legal documents, and other manuscript material of the Livingston and Kean families, dated from 1739-1847. The bulk of the collection is related to Susan Livingston Kean Niemcewicz (1759-1833). The Livingston and Kean families frequently corresponded and held accounts with other wealthy, prominent, colonial and early American families in New Jersey, especially Elizabethtown, Philadelphia, New York City, upstate New York, England, France, and Poland. A small portion of the collection includes correspondence with early Virginia families, unrelated to the Livingston and Kean families. The collection includes second hand accounts of enslaved people who were owned by the Kean and other families, offering a glimpse into their forced work and places of residence.
