- See also: "Church & Slave in Perry Co., MO
1818-1865," by Poole & Slawson. "The right to a lawful and valid
marriage. Unlike civil law in the U.S., church law recognized
the slave'scapacity to enter a valid, legitimate, and stable
union...." ( p. 56 ) The authors point out that Catholic slave
owners in Perry Co. in general
respected this right.
Just wanted to remind people that although most churches had
slaves as members and performed marriages between slaves, these
marriages were not legal. It was illegal for slaves to be
married in Missouri. These marriages did not stop slave owners
splitting up a married couple by selling either partner away
from the area. That happened here in Perry County at least
once. Billie Mills [email protected]
