General Petition Information

Abstract:Lewis W. Saxon claims that he was hired for the year 1817 in the capacity of overseer for Christopher Clark. Clark promised one eighth of all the crops made by Saxon and the plantation hands. Before the cotton crop was picked, however, Clark asked Saxon to leave his "employ," still promising to pay him one-eighth of the crop. Clark now refuses to honor his part of the arrangement. Saxon sues Clark for $200 in damages.
