1 Cabell County's Empire for Freedom
Carrie Eldridge
(1999), 2004, 8˝x11, paper, index, xviii+164 pp, Heritage Books
Sampson Sanders was the wealthiest landowner in Cabell County, [West] Virginia during the Anti-bellum Period, and the owner of fifty-one slaves that came to him through inheritance. Sanders never purchased or sold a slave, and upon his death, he manumitted all his slaves and provided them with the means and land to start a new life as free men and women in Michigan. This remarkable man taught his slaves to run his holdings rather than hire an overseer, and in defiance of Virginia laws, it is evident that some of his slaves could read, write and cipher. Readers and historians will appreciate this well researched perspective of life on Sander's unique plantation, as well as the history of its slaves. Thanks to nearly complete records, Carrie Eldridge is able to trace family origins back to Hannah, the family matriarch, and reconstruct the history and evolution of an African-American family from 1780 to the present. Numerous illustrations, appendices, a bibliography and indices to people and places enhance the text.

The Overseers of the Poor were gentlemen and property owners selected by the county court to protect the poor and indigent of the county. They were responsible for setting the Poor Rate and seeing that it was collected. From that Rage, they received a payment for their services and allotted monies to assist persons in need. This book covers most of the first fifty years of Cabell County’s existence (the period under Virginia control).
