Petition #20283101


Charlotte Hemphill is seeking her rightful distribution from the estate of her late father, William Hemphill. Charlotte states that she is the minor "daughter, orphan, and heir at law" of Hemphill, who died intestate in 1825. The court originally appointed Andrew Hemphill and David Fish executors of the estate, which included a number of slaves. In the intervening years, she contends, they have repeatedly ignored the court-established settlement regarding provisions for her welfare and education. A related document reveals that the William Hemphill's estate contains at least one slave.

Result: Granted.
