General Petition Information

Abstract:The Hanson family--James, John, and Martha--ask to bring inherited term slaves from Maryland into Missouri despite the law that permits importation only of slaves for life. The six slaves, ranging in age from seventeen to twenty-eight, were to be free when they reached age thirty-five. Being currently hired out by an agent, the slaves and their children did not receive the attention "that they would naturally receive from those who would feel an interest in and for them."
