General Petition Information

Abstract:When his daughter-in-law, Harriot Sophia Mollohon, moved to the Mississippi Territory to join her new husband, John Linton, Timothy Brundige loaned her a ten-year-old servant named Clara. However, Harriot Linton having died soon after her settling in Natchez; and Clara, having expressed the desire to return to her native state of Virginia, John Linton was induced by his "benevolent goodness" to provide passage for her via New Orleans and on to Baltimore. She has now been in Baltimore for a few months and Brundige wants to bring her back to Virginia. He asks that the slave be permitted to return to her native state. Although Harriot Sophia Mollohon is described as Brundige's "daugter In law," it is possible that she was in fact his stepdaughter, the term being then used interchangeably.
