General Petition Information

Abstract:Abraham Hammer seeks to emancipate Edee, a slave who "has always sustained the character of a faithful trusty and meritorious Servant." Hammer, "a member of a religious Society whose doctrine forbids its members to own Slaves," reveals that "the father and mother and all the brothers and sisters of said slave reside in Randolph County on which account she is unwilling to go to another State or Country where slavery is not permitted." The petitioner, along with twenty-two other residents of Randolph County, therefore prays that Edee be emancipated and that she be permitted "to remain in this State."
