General Petition Information

Abstract:William Meriwether seeks to foreclose on a mortgage with John Booker. In 1809, Booker mortgaged a group of eight slaves (and their increase) to Meriwether, who was acting in the capacity of guardian to the orphans of John Meriwether. Booker has failed to satisfy his debt to Meriwether. Meriwether asks the court to foreclose on the mortgage and to prevent Booker from removing the slaves from the state.
