Sandy Island Plantation Journals/Almanacs

sandyisland1797

These three almanacs from 1792, 1797, and 1798 contain interleaved pages with handwritten plantation journal entries kept by Allard Belin for his plantation on Sandy Island near Georgetown, South Carolina. The journal entries pertain to rice planting and harvesting, maintaining ditches and drains, planting corn and potatoes, problems with an overseer as well as a list of the names of slaves and number of blankets they received.

These materials are frequently requested by researchers but we are unable to provide access due to their fragile condition.
