Petition #20582102


Sarah McNeil states that, in May 1821, she sent her slave, Harry, out on some business. While conducting that business, Harry met Tom, a slave belonging to Henry Wilson. McNeil avers that Tom "maliciously and without provocation shot" Harry, wounding him mortally. She further represents that Wilson was notified of the shooting and subsequent death of Harry, but refuses to make restitution. McNeil asks the court to compel Wilson to pay $600 in damages.
