General Petition Information

Abstract:Charles Richardson claims that Ananias Dunbar owes him $3,000. He represents that Ananias Dunbar “forcibly and unlawfully” entered his land with "his negro men slaves," fell and took away five hundred trees, and appropriated the proceeds. Richardson claims that he has “amicably” approached Dunbar and demanded payment, but to no avail. He therefore prays for an order directing Richardson to pay him $3,000, the value of the stolen timber.
