General Petition Information

Abstract:Taken prisoner by the British in March 1781, Thomas Cabeen of Crosscreek represents that he was released as a "prisoner on parole." When he returned "after the departure of the British," Cabeen states that he discovered "that the greater part of his negroes had gone off with them." He recounts that later, while away from his house attending to business, two county officials "had been at his house, & feloniously carried away your Petitioners negro wench" and insinuated that he "was taking part with the British." The petitioner prays "that upon deliberation you will be pleased to order his property to be restored."
