James McConathy [a/k/a McConahey, a/k/a McConahy] [1795-1820] was born in South Carolina to Samuel and Margaret McConathy. James married Martha; they had a son in 1820. Soon after his son's birth, James died intestate and in debt. His wife Martha was appointed Administratrix of the estate; the court ordered her on November 6, 1820, to sell the plantation's assets in order to pay her husband's debts. An appraisal of the property on 12 December 1820 estimated its value at $1712.95. This Return of Sale records the results. Sale of the two slaves accounted for about three-quarters of the amount realized. [South Carolina, Wills and Probate Records, 1670-1980, database accessed on website of Ancestry.]. Item #35921
