General Petition Information

Abstract:A disinterested third-party seeks to resolve a dispute between the "heirs at law on the father's side" of Charles Henry Longworth, a deceased minor and owner of considerable land, slaves, and money. Charles H. DuPont says that the heirs are minors and that their interests should be "seduously guarded" by their parents. He seeks a bill to that effect and to ensure that future adjustments in any agreement should be made through the chancery court rather than the legislature.
