General Petition Information

Abstract:Martin M. Crews charges that on 24 July 1840 Charlotte R. Goodwin "made and executed" her promissory note to him for $446.43. Crews admits that the actual note has been lost but he states that the debt is still outstanding. The petitioner states that Charlotte Goodwin "is a married woman possessed of a seperate estate to her own seperate use consisting of negroes and stock and Land, and such were then sufficient to pay said debt due your orator as aforesaid and over which her husband has no control or interest." For this reason, Crews asks that the court "order and decree said notes to be paid out of the Separate property of said Charlotte R. Goodwin."
