Petition #11279108


John Loop represents that, "During the late Contest between the united States and Great Brittan,” he suffered the loss of grain, fodder, hay, fencing, and his barn at the hands of William Spurgens and was taken prisoner by said Spurgens. He further states that he received a slave named Simon in 1785 from Spurgens as compensation for his losses. Loop now asserts that Charles Bruce, the Commissioner of Confiscated Property "for the district of Sallisbury" has "Brought Sute against him for sd boy in behalf of the State." He therefore prays that "your Honourabel Body" will "pass a Resolve in favour of your Memorialist."
