Petition #20486004


The orphans of John and Virginia Randolph, deceased, state that in the last will and testament of Gabriella Brockenbrough, of Virginia, the testatrix bequeathed $8000 for the joint benefit of the petitioners in addition to two male slaves for the benefit of the petitioner, John. She named George Chapman and Lewis Harvie, both of Virginia, trustees for the petitioners. Chapman died before accepting the trust. The petitioners state that Harvie has now refused to execute the trust. They believe that since Harvie was never appointed by a court as trustee, they will have to "prosecute a long and tedious chancery suit in the state of Virginia." They seek a removal or transfer of the "trust effects" and the appointment of a new trustee.

Result: Granted.
