Petition #11280514


Stephen Carrol represents that in January 1805 he pursued an accused murderer by the name of Jonathan Chevers, a free man of color also called John White, "with great labor and pains and at great expence and by continued perseverance at length arrested the body of the said Jonathan Chevers and lodged the same in the district Jail for the District of Fayetteville." He reports that the said Chevers "was tried for said murder and by a verdict of a Jury fully convicted thereof but afterwards as your petitioner ... believes received the pardon of the executive of this State." The petitioner asks that an act be passed allowing "to be made some remuneration for the services rendered to the public and the expence & labor which your petitioner suffered and underwent."
