Petition #20184401


Ellen Dailey is the administratrix of the estate of her husband, Michael Dailey. She states that Michael and William Clair were the joint owners of seven slaves worth $5000, and that after Michael's death, Clair sold all the slaves to Abram Wolf who "took possession of the same and ever since has received the entire profits of their labor to himself and has rendered no account thereof to your oratrix." The petitioner asks that Wolf pay her one half of the value of the services of the slaves, and that he return to her the slaves to which she is entitled. She notes that "if a division cannot be had without injury that then said slaves be sold and one half of the sum produced by the sale be decreed to your oratrix."
