John Herritage, a Commissioner of Confiscated Property for Dobbs County, states that, by order of the county court, he received certificates from persons "indebted to absentees" whose property had been confiscated. Asserting that these certificates were not honored by the General Assembly, Herritage therefore prays that he be alleviated "from the payment of a greater proportion than hath been by him received." An inventory of confiscated property listed five slaves and their hiring value in 1782.
