General Petition Information

Abstract:William Love, the keeper of Kershaw District jail, represents that he committed "a certain negro man named Jim" to jail on charges of being a runaway. Love recounts that Jim "affirmed that he belonged to a Mr James Wade of Georgia to whom your Petitioner wrote requesting him to come and pay charges and take away his slave." The petitioner reports, however, that he "received no answer and the said slave died in goal on the eighteenth day of March last." Love therefore prays that he be granted $44.54 to cover Jim's expenses "during his confinement in goal."
