According to a family history written by his son, Emanuel Quivers was named John Emanuel Quivers and was born 17 MAY 1814, the youngest of five children born to Jonathan and Sarah Quivers slaves at Harrison's Landing. Quivers Family Notes, typescript photocopy, Charles City County Richard M. Bowman Center for Local History Archives. Emanuel Quivers has been the subject of scholarly writing because he persuaded Joseph Reed Anderson of Tredigar to purchase him from the Harrison estate under an arrangement whereby Quivers earned wages that were paid into an account to buy his freedom. See Kathleen Bruce, Virginia Iron Manufacture in the Slave Era (New York: The Century Co.: 1931). Quivers also purchased the freedom of his wife. As the final step in earning his freedom Quivers was sent to Califronia with Anderson's business partner as a mechanic for a large engine destined for the Fremont Gold mine. Quivers obituary states that while employed at Tredigar he was commissioned by Anderson to obtain an important secret in the iron puddling process from the Welsh iron workers which he was able to do because he was a "well-bred man" and was able to associate with them and ellicit the secret when ther "were in their cups." If this account is accurate Quivers may have been the key that allowed Anderson to fire the Welsh workers when they went out on strike and to convert Tredigar entirely to slave labor. The family history claims that Sarah Quivers was a full sister of Pres. William Henry Harrison and that her children were not slaves. This account is contradicted by documentary evidence. However

Info & Sources
A family history written by a son of Emanuel Quivers lists Sarah "Polly" Kemp as a daughter of Jonathan and Sarah Quivers and a sister of Emanuel. Quivers Family Notes, typescript photocopy, Charles City County Richard M. Bowman Center for Local History Archives. This information is somewhat inconsistent with other documentary evidence, but is accepted for the purposes of this register as correct. Polly Kemp and her children (Christopher, Stephen, John and Sarah) were emancipated in 1843 by Andrew Johnston, executor of Robert Johnston. The connection, if any, between the Johnstons and the Harrisons of Berkeley is unknown. The deed describes the grantor as "late of the City of Richmond," but at the time of the making of the deeds a resident of Adams County, Illinois. Polly is described in the deed of emancipation as POLLY BURGESS before her marriage to STEPHEN KEMP, a slave belonging to Isaac Davenport of the City of Richmond. The Inventory of Benjamin Harrison V, Signer of the Declaration of Independence lists two slaves by the name Polly Burges, so a connection to Berkeley seems apparent. Polly Kemp is further described in the deed of emancipation as a mulatto woman of dark complexion about five feet three inches high and about forty four years of age. Charles City County Deed Book 9, pp 314-16. The family history erroneously describes Polly as married to Christopher Kemp, when in fact Christopher was the name of her son. Finally, the family history states that Polly died in Richmond at the age of ninety-nine years, nine months and ten days. Polly Kemp is listed as a 50 year old head of household in the City of Richmond Census of 1850. Also listed are children Stephen, age 19, Sarah E. age 10 and William, age 9. Stephen Kemp, husband of Polly, was named a Trustee of the First African Baptist Church for the Monroe Ward, 04 DEC 1848. First African Baptist Church Minutes, microfilm copy Library of Virginia. Christopher Kemp was also a member of the church and was dismissed by letter 03 JUNE 1849, when he apparently left the state. Polly and her children risked being sold back into slavery by remaining in the state after their emancipation.

Daugther of Peggy and sibling of Manuel, Lucy, Sally, Coy and Nelly. The striking similarity in the names of Peggy's children and those of Jonathan and Sarah Quivers strongly sugggests this is a Quivers family and that Peggy might have been the first wife of Coy Quivers. Agnes is one of the slaves mentioned in deeds mortgaging all of the slaves and property at Berkeley and was purchased by Joseph R. Anderson for $545 in the same bill of sale which describes the two as "Manuel and Agnes Quivers." Deed of 13 MAY 1828, Charles City Deed Book No. 7, pg. 295. Bill of sale 13 DEC 1845, Tredigar Papers, Library of Virginia Archives. Agnes Allen is listed in the household of Anderson in the 1870 census. She died 08 JAN 1887 in Richmond and her death record indicates she was born 1822 at "Berkeley" Virginia and that she was widowed.

Walker and Melvina Shields and their three children, Lettie, Joe Jones and Walker "Giggs," were slaves owned by William Southall Graves of Cherry Hall. A list was made by John Edmond Graves of slaves belonging to his father some twenty years after the war in the belief that southern property owners would be compensated for loss of their slaves. Giggs Shields was listed as 14 years old, presumably meaning 14 in 1865. Charles City County Richard M. Bowman Center for Local History Archives, Family Records Collection. Walker and Malvina Shields, over the age of 50 and with no former owner specified, were destitute freedmen on the Taylor Farm in Princess Anne County.

President Tyler is said to have "had a great opinion of his physical powers" and to have "admired him intensely. Anonymous, "The Planter's Pride in his Slaves," Vol. XXIII, No. 4, April 1915, pp 225-26, William and Mary Quarterly (First Series). This article was probably authored by Lyon Tyler, President of the College of William and Mary and son of President Tyler. The article describes an incident in which Roscius was locked in a barn by an overseer who was dissatisfied with the deference accorded him by Roscius and proposed to whip him to improve his deference. Roscius prevented the whipping by grabing the overseer by the wrists. The overseer the screamed "murder" and those who rushed to help were witness to his humiliation at the hands of a slave. The president reportedly found the incident to be highly amusing and not long thereafter fired the overseer. Roscius was the son of William Short, President Tyler's head butler. A slave by the name "Roscius" is listed in an 1813 Inventory of slaves belonging to John Tyler
