James Gignilliat had seven heirs to his estate, all of
them were cousins. Five children of his uncle John May Gignilliat
and 2 children of his uncle Henry Gignilliat. There were a
total of 21 enslaved, all divided into seven lots, and two lists can be found,
one listing all of the enslaved, the other listing them in lots.
To keep from being redundant, I will just use the lot listing which was
dated 17 January 1823. James' will was dated 27 February
1821, the enslaved listing was dated 15 January 1822, a whole year passed
before the estate was settled.
