Sample text

At Mesopotamia there were 331 more recorded slave deaths than births between 1762 and 1833, and the owners— Joseph Foster Barham I (1729–1789) and his son Joseph Foster Barham II (1759– 1832)—continually brought in new slaves in order to keep the place going. At Mount Airy there were 293 more recorded births than deaths between 1809 and 1863, and the owners— John Tayloe III (1771–1828) and his son William Henry Tayloe (1799–1871)—took full advantage of this population growth. They moved their surplus laborers to new work sites or made money by selling them.

Ages are not stated, but this population—like the Mesopotamia population in 1727—must have been young and vigorous.

Appendix 1 tabulates the population changes under the elder Barham during the years 1762–1789, followed by the changes under his son’s management during the years 1790–1833.
