General Petition Information

Abstract:Vincent Sebastian Pintado seeks to recover a debt from the estate of the late Ira C. Kneeland. Pintado presents that Kneeland mortgaged his land and nineteen slaves to him to secure a loan of $4,030.75. The loan is now past due but Kneeland has died and his executors, Elijah Adams, Henry Stirling, and Charles McMicken, have yet to pay on the debt. In consideration of these facts, Pintado prays that the mortgaged property be seized and sold to satisfy the debt. In a counter-petition, Susana Kneeland, the widow of the late Kneeland, and her new husband, Jason Thompson, represent that part of the property seized by Pintado actually belongs to Susana. The property includes three slaves, one of whom she received from her father when she married Kneeland and the other two she brought from a previous marriage to one Mr. Cobb.
