Petition #20785331


James B. Martin, guardian of Judith K., John W., and James W. Martin, states that William J. Moore published his last will and testament in 1837. Moore devised a female slave named Clarcey and her future increase to the children of Judy Martin. The petitioner asserts that his wards are heirs of Judy Martin. Pointing out that Clarcey now has three children, Martin contends that it would be impossible to divide the slaves equally. He asks permission to sell the slaves and divide the proceeds.
