Petition #20686517


Philip Robinson, guardian of Betsy and Nancy Park, petitions for permission to sell "perishable property" belonging to the orphans. Henry Walker, their former guardian, had purchased a plantation, planning to employ the slaves the Parks owned at the time. Robinson claims that "said Orphans have not the means to employ laborers to carry on said farm, were it even legal & right for the same to be done." There has been "much plundering & stealing" in the area of the plantation; some hogs were stolen recently. Robinson asks for an order to sell the perishable property, including livestock and crops.

Result: Granted.
