General Petition Information

Abstract:William P. Bosley and his wife Paulina contend that she is “the only legitimate heir at Law” of Isaac Foster. They charge that the late William Hughs Young, an associate of Foster's, and his purported wife, Jane Young, perpetrated a fraud upon Paulina, alleging that the said Youngs "used every effort to keep her in ignorance of her parantage & her right to the property in their possession." They further assert that the said William "devised all of sd property to the sd Jane Young during her natural life, when the sd slaves were to be emancipated, and the property to go to them." The Bosleys seek ownership of all property from William Young's estate, including that now being held by Jane.
