Susan Kean wrote to Robert Barnwell, unaddressed. This document is a draft of a letter. Susan Kean requested Barnwell give her information on an account in which Barnwell charged himself with the monies he had already received on the assigned debts. Susan was informed that the Georgia lands made over in trust to herself and her son, Peter could not be sold. Susan also discussed land that was purchased by Barnwell on her father’s estate and land in South Carolina. This document is undated but likely written in 1796 in response to Robert Barnwell’s of October 23, 1796.
Susan Kean, formerly Susan Livingston and later Susan Ursin Niemcewicz (1759-1833)
