General Petition Information

Abstract:Doctor Franklin claims to be the great-grandson of an American Indian woman from Virginia and therefore asserts that he is free. While this case is being determined, he asks to be taken into the custody of the sheriff and held or hired out, because he fears that he will be removed from the court's jurisdiction.
