Petition #11380902


John Rose seeks compensation for his slave, Tybee, who was convicted and executed for burglary in 1806. Rose recounts that he previously petitioned the state senate in 1807 for relief and that he included an appraisal from the Court of Justices and Freeholders for $128 with said petition; however, when he inquired as to the outcome of his prayer, he was told that his request had been held up in committee because "The Record of the Trial is wanting." Believing that said appraisement "must be by some means lost or mislaid," the petitioner now submits an affidavit attesting "that a Record of the same accompanied with an appraisement did actually exist." Rose seeks "such relief as may be just & right."
