General Petition Information

Abstract:The petitioner is Rosalie Belly, a free woman of color and the widow of a free man of color named Antoine Dubuclet. Rosalie Belly Dubuclet presents that, by a recent order of the court, she has been authorized to "execute a special mortgage in due form of law" in favor of her five minor children, in order to secure their claims against her as their "natural tutrix." Rosalie Dubuclet therefore asks the court that the special mortgage be duly recorded. She also asks that this "special" mortgage be the "only one" that the minors may resort to in case of need, and that all her other property be freed from mortgages or "incumbrances" in their favor. A related petition reveals that Antoine Dubuclet was a "mulatto."
