James Gignilliat
15 January 1822

James Gignilliat had 7 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 slaves, all divided into 7 lots, and two lists can be found, one listing all of the slaves, 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 slave listing was dated 15 January 1822, a whole year passed before the estate was settled.
