General Petition Information

Abstract:John C. Mikell represents that he rented "a certain tract of Land from the Trustees of the Presbyterian Church of Edisto Island on which there was neither dwelling House, Negro House, or any building whatever." He further declares that he "did use every endeavor in his power to have the necessary buildings there, but was unable to effect his purpose, being but a young and a small Planter." Reporting that "the Tax collector thought your petitioner liable to the fine of One Hundred Dollars," Mikell "does now think it an extreme hard case" as he did everything "to comply with the law respecting settled Plantations." The petitioner therefore prays that "the Comptroller may be directed to refund the said fine of One Hundred Dollars."
