Sidnah (Sheffield) Tison Peck received the following enslaved persons to be divided amongst Job’s children upon her death: Tom, Judy, Ned, and Maria.

Aaron Tison received Ben.

Isabell Sidnah Tison received Hester.

Melinda Tison received Phillis (presumably, the daughter of Mary, however, on another paper in the estate, it says that William Tison received Phillis, therefore, is this the same person or was there an adult Phillis that Melinda received?

Job Carter, grandson, received Frank.
