By: Kayla Frederick

William's Daughter's Clothes
On June Fifth, 1773, William sent an invoice for shoes, gloves and stays, for his daughter, Lucy. September twenty-third, 1775, Lucy bought a fan and some white and colored ribbons.
Charles Being Sold
Charles says in his diary that, " This man came to me, and seizing me by the shirt collar shook me violently, saying I was his property, and must go with him to Georgia. The thoughts of my wife and children rushed across my mind, and my heart died away within me. I knew that my case was hopeless. A strong iron collar was closely fitted by means of a padlock around each of our necks. A chain of iron was passed through the hasp of each padlock. We were also handcuffed in pairs, with iron staples and bolts with a short chain."
