BATTLES, ROBERT
    by Julia Munro

JUEL ID/KEY: P47363
Robert Battles was a freed man of colour who owned a small farm near the boundaries of the University. His name comes up several times in the John Hartwell Cocke papers surrounding discussions of the purchase of his property by Cocke (P43616). A document signed and dated by Battles on 22 March 1825, for instance, records his having received "six hundred and sixty dollars" from Cocke.
