There is only one known record for Warrick (last name unknown). Warrick was enslaved by Hardy Murfree. Upon Murfree’s death, his estate and slave holdings were divided amongst his living relatives. Warrick is listed alongside her son in Hardy Murfree’s estate settlement.[i] Warrick was one of the enslaved African Americans placed under Dr. James Maney’s ownership.[ii] Warrick and her son were given a collective monetary value of two-hundred-twelve dollars and fifty cents by the North Carolina court.[iii] It is unknown if Warrick was taken from a spouse or other family members. Warrick likely was taken from her home in North Carolina to Murfreesboro, Tennessee to work on the Maney plantation (present day Oaklands Mansion). Warrick’s age and role on the Maney plantation is unknown. It is unknown what happened to Warrick after 1814.
