Other Duplin County Slave Owners


PETER CARLTON'S WILL OF DUPLIN County NC

Peter Carlton was minister, slave owner and a very prosperous man during his adult lifetime. His first wife Elizabeth who was his first cousin was also born into another prosperous slave owning Carlton family of Duplin County. From reading Peter's will of 1840, it appears that he and Elizabeth did not have any children and that it is a possibility that they were during this time the slave owners of my gg grandmother Nancy Carlton-Johnson who was born sometime around 1838. In the writing of his will Peter speaks of the slave girl Nancy several times.
