This is a bill of sale for my paternal great-great-great grandfather, Leven. The sale is dated 3 April 1807 of Leven about 22 years of age , from Isaac Shute to Foster and Withers for $600. Leven last name is Weathers, very similar to Withers, his slave holder. Leven was assigned to Lewis Stirling on 7 November 1807.
This document was found by Judy Riffel as she was researching the Stirling Papers. Lewis Stirling is the owner of the Wakefield Plantation in St. Francisville, Louisiana.
