Petition #11085908


Warren County residents say that Green, a free man of color and a gin wright, is sober, industrious, and very useful as a planters' supply man. He has lived in the area nearly thirty years, and his wife also resides on the Harris plantation. They request that he be exempted from the bill pending in the Senate designed to drive free blacks from the state. The bill, they said, had passed the House.
