General Petition Information

Abstract:William Willis, sheriff of Concord Parish, states that the tax list on land and slaves for his parish was delivered to him on the 13th of November. It was due back by March 1st. This did not give him enough time to "make the necessary demands," especially when he was required by law to defer seizure ninety days in cases of default. He asks the legislature for an extension.
