    Hmm… But what about the claim that a very common occurence was the indentured servants being deliberately worked to death or otherwise ensured they wouldn’t actually make it through their contracted time, since the contracts promised them a plot of land at the end of their service which the landowner didn’t have to give if the servant died before its completion? Does that hold much water?
