General Petition Information

Abstract:Paulin Verret presents to the court that, after the death of the late Maximilien Ricard, his widow Marie Louise Ricard became the tutrix of their minor children, Clotilde, Telcide, Paulin and Marie Louise. Verret was appointed "under tutor" of the children. The widow Ricard has also now died and the children are without "a guardian or tutors or curators." Verret therefore asks that a family meeting be convened so that the minors can be provided with guardians, tutors and curators as the law provide. The Ricards relatives are free people of color and slave owners. Related petitions reveal that Paulin Verret was also a free man of color.
