Petition #11280811


Lucy Cook Self seeks to secure her right to a slave named Tisha. Before she went to the "western Country" with her husband in 1803, Self states that her father gave her "a Certain Negro wench Named tisha which sd wench was by virtue of the sd Deed of Gift to be my property at my fathers Decease which sd Negro Remains in my fathers possession." Lamenting that she lost her eyesight about 1806 and her husband "Departed from her & Left her in that Doleful Situation & Never Returned to Dwell with her any more," the petitioner prays that she be granted "some Releif by Securing to her the aforesaid Negro wench together with Such other property as She may hereafter acquire."
