General Petition Information

Abstract:George Tuggle and Duke Cole are the executors of John Cole's estate, which includes Lucy, valued at $500, and her three children, each worth $200. The petitioners claim that in December of the previous year, they "casually lost" the slave, who fell into the possession of Allen Pryor. They allege that although Pryor knew that the slaves were their property, he "converted the said negroes to his own use." They sue for $2,000 in damages.
