The will of Captain Eliphaz Shelton, written 4 July 1818
and probated at Patrick County VA August Court 1826 has been transcribed and is available online. Thank you to those who have posted it! What I am looking for is the
INVENTORY of his estate. Specifically, I am looking for the names of the slaves listed in the inventory.
The accounts of his estate, also online, include credits for:
....rent of land and hire of the negroes..163.69
....amount Sales of negroes..............2537.62½

Can anyone provide me a copy of Eliphaz Shelton's estate inventory, or any details contained therein related to his slaves? Thank you in advance for your help.

Unfortunately, no. An inventory must have been taken, but I have found no record of it. As you probably know, there's an "account current" (http://files.usgwarchives.net/va/patrick/wills/sheltn01.txt), and an inventory for his wife, Ann/Nancy (http://files.usgwarchives.net/va/patrick/wills/sheltn04.txt). There are also individual deeds for the distribution of land among the heirs (http://files.usgwarchives.net/va/patrick/deeds/sndfr1.txt, http://files.usgwarchives.net/va/patrick/deeds/sndfr3.txt).

That's too bad. Thanks for taking the time to respond. I had considered reviewing the relevant reel of Patrick County, VA microfilm (Reel 14, containing Will Bookx 1,2 and 3) from the Library of Virginia --or have you already done that?

Thanks for your help.

I have looked at it, and also at the Court Order Books, where you can often find additional info; but I may have missed something. The settlement took years.
