Petition #11081501


The petitioner, Benajah Randle, informs the court that a few months earlier, an American Indian brought to him a slave by the name of Toney, who, after questioning, was found to belong to one John Brown of Wilkinson County. Randle, mindful of his duties as a good citizen, took the slave over to Washington jail in Adams County. The slave died in jail a short time later. Illiterate, poor, and with a large family, Randle seeks reimbursement for expenses incurred in fulfilling his responsibilities.

Result: Denied.
