Petition #11083307


Micajah Pickett, guardian of his grandson James Knox Pickett and administrator of the estate of James's late father, Hiram S. Pickett, asks permission to sell two slaves from the estate: "one a very old negro man aged about 70 years named Peter - and a negro woman named Christian more than forty years of age." They would be sold to James's maternal uncles, Nathan and James C. Knox, who own Peter's wife and Christian's husband, as partial credit for debts owed to them by Hiram's estate. Nathan and James Knox live in Louisiana.
