Petition #20684602


John and Henrietta Raiden state that a slave, Eliza, was conveyed by Hezekiah Grubbs to Leah Simons in trust for his then seven-year-old daughter, Henrietta. Later, Simons, with Henrietta's consent, traded the slave for two other slaves, Let and her son, Washington. Henrietta has now married John Raiden, and they have asked Simons to give them the slaves and any money earned by their hire. Simons refused. The Raidens seek possession of Let, Washington and Let's second child, Martha.

Result: Granted.
