Petition #20185419


Calvin A. Harris, administrator of the estate of Myram E. A. Mitchell, explains that it is "not practicable to keep up and continue the plantation." He asks to sell the "growing Crops, and perishable property" belonging to the estate, and to "hire out and rent out the lands and negroes belonging to said Estate for the ensuing year 1855." Harris notes that the estate's property is currently "involved in a Chancery suit now pending and undetermined in the Chancery Court." Proceeds from any sale could be used, in part, to satisfy any court judgment rendered against the estate in said suit. The related documents attached in this petition pertain to the estate of Napoleon B. Mitchell, not Myram's E. A. Mitchell.
