Terry family slaves

In a effort to fully document our family history and to provide assistance to African-Americans researching their slave ancestry, I occasionally compile the names of slaves listed in historical documents (wills, deeds, etc.) related to our family.

The slaves below are from the 24 May 1815 sale of slaves from the heirs of Stephen Terry (d. 1807) in Fairfield County, South Carolina, to Frederech Heath. Frederick Heath is probably the husband of Stephen's sister Jeriah Terry. I believe they lived in Orangeburg County, South Carolina. Nothing else is known (yet) on this family.
