General Petition Information

Abstract:In 1820, Moses Kindell executed an instrument of writing whereby he freed his slave Jim. Subsequently, Jim passed as free for a few months prior to Kindell's death. After Kindell's death, however, the administrator of his estate sold Jim to one Robert Elliott, and this in fact that the estate was solvent. Now, a group of Limestone residents, satisfied that is was Kindell's intention to emancipate his slave and declaring Jim to have been "a faithful & honest servant," ask for the latter's manumission.
