Petition #11000019


Nicholas P. Carr asks the legislature to emancipate the slave named Betsey, who was freed in the will of deceased Adams County resident Timothy Gifford. The testator was much attached to Betsey because of "her fidelity & attention to him." The petitioner, who is the executor of Gifford's will and his sole "legatee," is in full agreement with the testator's wishes.
