110 "Anne" Harrison was named administratrix of the estate. We do not know at this time whether she remarried or had any other children. William Henry would have been only 10 years of age when his father died. We assume that his mother managed the plantation until William was of age and/or his mother died, at which time he no doubt inherited the property. It is usually financially disastrous to a family if the father dies young. There has been insufficient time to accumulate wealth, which usually occurs in the later years of one's life. The children are deprived of the instruction of the father in learning how to manage the crops, the animals and the slaves. We can assume that the slaves knew what needed to be done and kept the enterprise going. But the loss of the master, who did the planning and managed the business of the plantation, is irreplaceable.

The inventory of the estate of Gary Cotton taken 2/25/1805 lists eleven slaves: Lewis, John, Solomon (a boy), Michael (a boy), Doctor (a boy), Chloe (old), Sarah, Bede, Dolly, Patsy, Chloe. The slaves are valued at L848, two horses L55, one yoke young steers L 7, sixteen sheep L10, oId bull L5, five cows LI 8, two heifers L3, two steers L4, two yearlings L2, four sows L4, one blue boar L2, nine year-old hogs L5.5, eight shoots £2.5. Three beds and furniture L32. There is little else of significant value listed.

It is clear that slaves were by far the greatest resource and store of wealth for most of the farmers in Surry and Sussex Counties. Each plantation was a community in itself. Of the eleven slaves listed in Carey Cotton's estate only two were grown men able to plow the fields. There were three boys and six women of various ages. To survive, all would have to cooperate together.

120 "I Benjamin Ellis of Surry County, lend to my wife Sarah Ellis the use of all my land and plantation whereon I now live, lying on the south side of the boIling alley road as also seven Negroes as followeth: Harry, his wife Sal and her five children Lucy, Darby, Beck, Jesse, and Bon, one sorrel mare named Jenny, two cows, and calves and three of my newest feather beds and furniture during her natural life or widowhood and at her death or marriage I give all the aforementioned property both real and personal to be equally divided among them to my three daughters Anne Ellis, Polly Ellis, and Sarah Ellis eight Negroes to be equally divided among them as followeth: Ned, Hal, Milly, Hannah, Jacob, Sook, Tempey, and Lendrick."

"l desire that my old Negro woman Lydia may have the privilege of living with my wife or any of my children that she may make choice of."

"I desire that all my swamp land known by the name of Indian Island and all the remainder of my estate be sold and out of the money arising therefrom pay all my just debts and funeral expenses. The remainder divided among my three children Anne, Polly, and Sarah Ellis. I appoint my friends John Velvin and James Hill as executors. This the 15 day of August in 1808. Signed Benja Ellis."

With 16 slaves in his estate, it can be assumed that Benjamin was fairly wealthy. His will was proved at a court of quarterly sessions for Surry County on November 26, 1811, .which was probably the year of his death.
