General Petition Information

Abstract:John Posse, guardian of Ann Wootan, claims that John Bradford and Samuel Landrum owe $100 to him. The debt was incurred for the hiring of a slave named Will during 1810. The hiring agreement stipulated that Bradford and Landrum should pay $70 for the hires and provide Will with two shirts, two pairs of overall, and one winter jacket. They also agreed to pay the slave tax on Will. Posse claims that the defendants have not paid their debt nor furnished the required articles of clothing. He sues for the amount due him.
