Petition #11082305


J. Y. McNabb seeks to "manumit a certain very aged negro woman named Lucy" in accordance with the will of Michael Morris. For many years she had been a "faithful servant," though the petitioner states that he did not know if she had performed "meritorious service." In his will, Michael Morris bequeathed Lucy to McNabb on the condition that the latter would manumit her.
