Petition #10384306


Thomas Butcher and John Dean, the illegitimate brothers of Jesse Dean, report that the said Dean died in 1842 possessed of a fifty-acre tract of land and a "personal estate, worth about sixty dollars." Dean, a mulatto, "died intestate and without leaving to survive him any issue, heirs or known kindred capable according to the laws of this state of inheriting and holding his said property real and personal by reason whereof the said property has escheated to and become vested in the State of Delaware." The petitioners therefore pray that a law be passed "vesting in and granting to your petitioners the right interest and title of the State in said property both personal and real."
