Source:  Record of Accounts, Inventories & Sales of Estates, Hertford Co., NC, 1835-1837, Volume III; c. 1992, Raymond Parker Fouts; GenRec Books, Cocoa, FL; Pages 103-142.  Special thanks to Seth Warner.   Extract by Susan Shields Sasek.

SSS Note:  In my extract, I have included names, dates, places, and some comments -- not the hundreds of items listed in the inventory (except for the names of books in Daniel Southalls Library that were sold), and I did not include any amounts, except for the total at the very end of the listings.  Daniel owned several properties and a store, and I found it interesting to read the items and what they cost at the time. I do not have copies from the Hertford Co., NC Court records, only the transcription that was printed in Raymond Parker Fouts book; thus I only extracted genealogical data from the book.  If you see anything of interest to you on these pages, I included the information if you would like to obtain a copy of the book, or the microfilm at the North Carolina State Archives in Raleigh so that you can refer to one of those for more information.
