Top Ten Black Slaveowners-- Part 2: Bought Her Husband

Here are Aubrey Henderson's Top Ten.  You can go to her June 6, 2017, Listverse entry "Top Ten Black Slaveowners" to read more about these people.  Makes for interesting reading.  I am just giving a little information.

10.  Dilsey Pope--  Born a free woman, but bought the man she loved.  Yes, make your wife mad at you and get sold.

9.  Jacob Gasker

8.  Nat Butler

7.  Justus Angel and Mistress L. Horry--  owned 168 slaves

6.  Widow C. Richards and son P.C. Richards owned 152 slaves.
