General Petition Information

Abstract:John and Charles O. Scriven are executors of Charles Oddingsells's estate. The estate includes a number of slaves, and it has been necessary to rent land on which they labor. Since the estate is free from debt, "your Petitioners believe that the surplus money of said Estate cannot be more advantageously invested than in Land." John Scriven owns an island that he would like to sell. He and Charles ask that they be allowed to purchase the land for the benefit of the estate.
