General Petition Information

Abstract:Daniel W. K. Wilson claims that John Noland is indebted to him in the sum of $900. He represents that he was hired as overseer on Noland’s plantation on the 1st of January 1840, at the rate of $100 per month, and “faithfully discharged” his duties for nine months, for which Noland owes him $900. He contends, however, that Noland refuses to pay, although “amicably demanded.” He therefore seeks an order of the court condemning Noland to pay the $900.
