General Petition Information

Abstract:Samuel Green Jr. and Nathaniel Green argue that they were convicted of hog stealing "by the Oath of one Abraham Green." The petitioners aver "that we were innocent of the Crimes with which were Charged" and that the said Abraham Green "stood Charged at the Same Court with Stealing negroes, and one or two days after, tried and Convicted & Sentenced to be hang’d, but obtain’d a reprieve." They therefore request that a law be passed “restoring your petitioners to Citizenship” as the "character of the said Abraham Green by whose oath we were convicted" may be considered "amiss."
