Biographical Text

In a business agreement with John Greathouse, it was Charles Beale's responsibility to find "working hands." It is unclear whether these working hands were bought or leased by Charles from another owner (who is unknown). Jack (EnslavedPerson:20006), Pat (EnslavedPerson:20007), and Beck (EnslavedPerson:20008) were specifically named in the agreement as being the working hands.
