Petition #11083010


Forty-three Monroe County residents ask that Jasper A. McQuery be compensated for the upkeep and support of an abandoned, insane black girl who was brought to the county in February 1829 and left by an unknown person. The girl was "incapable of laboring for her support and is an object of the greatest pity." They also request the legislature "to make some permanent provision for like cases in the future."

Result: Bill drawn.
