Sam Tabb is described in the following passage from "Christmas Holidays, at Teddington," Southern Literary Messenger (March 1841). "Sam Tabb, valet de chambre and factotum general, -- a person of extensive experience in the article of seine-hauling, --"stood up to his waist in the waters of the James river many a bleak blustering night--captivated, in his day, lots of rocks, cats, alewives, herrings, shad, perch, sturgeon, and what not. Sam has had his day, --has now retired, and yeilded his place to other adventurers. He is now a mere laudator acti temporis still he indulges in an occasional desultory episode, and catches now and then, ad rem natuuam, an extemporaneous mess of fish for the Great-house. "Peace gild the sunset of thy declining years, Sam Tabb, blessed with numerous progeny, and, to cheer thy winter evening, an inexhaustible stock of tender icthyological reminiscences!"

William White was one of three slaves convicted of conspiracy to make an insurrection 03 JUN 1861. White was charged, along with another slave who also belongied to Dr. Richard Epps of City Point, and a slave from Shirley Plantation of conspiring "to rebel or make insurrection by conversing together about the Northern Army & their expectations of being set free & having arms put in their hands & their readyness to rebel against their masters." Thirty nine lashes was the sentence imposed on each slave. Charles City County Records, Library of Virginia Archives, Ended Causes, Box 33, BC#1044799. Edmund Ruffin wrote about this conspiracy in his diary on May 26th. Ruffin stated that the conspiracy involved slaves on both sides of the river and had been in progress for six to eight months. The conspirators allegedly made their plans under the cover of night meetings for pretended religious worship. At the time of the diary entry the responsible slaves had not been apprehended, but Ruffin wrote that slaves at Eppes Island and at Shirley were thought to be the most guilty. William Kauffman Scarborough, The Diary of Edmund Ruffin, (Louisiana State Univ. Press: Baton Rouge: 1976) vol II, p. 35. This may be the same William White who was committed to Castle Thunder on a charge of disloyalty and giving information to the enemy. White, who was described as a "detailed conscript," was committed on these charges along with Lemuel Babcok and Anthony a slave belonging to Charles Christian. Richmond Examiner 27 FEB 1865. Babcock filed a successful claim with the Southern Claims Commission in which he stated that he joined the U.S. Secret Service and gathered and conveyed information to Gen. Sharp at Fort Pocahontas, thus the two slaves may have been employed by Babcock to obtain information. Southern Claims Commission Claim of L. E.
