General Petition Information

Abstract:In 1839, Moses Wickaise loaned Colin C. McRae nearly six thousand dollars, accepting as collateral a mortgage on a wagon, horses, mules, and eight slaves, including John King and John McGowen, valued at one thousand dollars each, and Perry, Sally, and Leah and her three children. Following McRae's death in 1841, Wickaise sought payment. Now he sues McRae's widow to foreclose on the mortgage. He asks that the slaves and "other chattels" be sold, and "out of the proceeds of such sale" he be paid the debt on the note.
