General Petition Information

Abstract:Thornton Holeman alleges that George W. Evans owes him $980. Holeman claims that he was hired to manage Evans's plantation and receive $380, various provisions for his family and for his horse, the use of a young male slave in the house, and, occasionally, the use of a female slave. He contends that he performed his duties as overseer as understood and agreed upon. For this, he was to receive additional compensation as might be deemed reasonable. Holeman estimates this amount at $600. However, Evans has not honored these financial obligations. Holeman asks the court to award him $980 for his work.
