General Petition Information

Abstract:Abandoned by her husband, who "went off to the Western Country," Milly Farrar confides that she and her infant child are "destitute of any Means of Support Other than she might procure by her labour." She laments that when John lay "aside all paternal affections, and the more engaging ties of a husband," he nonetheless retained the "four Negroes, which were given her by her Father." She therefore prays that "Such property as She may hereafter Acquire" be secured to her.
