Description: This set of documents from a file titled "Inheritance of Bou Kounta 1914-1915" lists the estate of Buh Kunta inventoried and valued after his death in 1914. It includes properties in Saint-Louis, Rufisque, Dakar, Tivaouane, and Ndiassane; animals (including oxen and cows, donkeys, camels, horses, goats); cash; and rental income.  One document specifies the division of the inheritance; another one indicates that Buh Kunta's three eldest sons - Bekaye Kunta, Abdurahmane Kunta & Sidy Lamin Kunta - agree to pay the workers assisting with the settlement 3% of what is left of the estate.
