General Petition Information

Abstract:Frederick Broaders and Laurent Dursse join their respective wives, Ann and Elizabeth, in asking for the court's permission to sell bank stock that the women inherited from the late John Parker. The petitioners wish to use the proceeds of the sale to vest immediately "in Negroes which are now selling at a moderate price." They surmise that the slaves' wages "and the increase of the Females would bring in a much greater Interest to them than the said Stock now produces." They request that James Thomson be appointed as trustee to implement the sale and to divide the proceeds.
