Petition #11281902


Rebecca Newkirk, wife of Alexander Newkirk, prays "that a law may be passed at your present Session securing to her such property and effects as she may hereafter acquire in such manner as will effectually prevent such property and Effects being subject or liable to the discharge or payment of any Debt heretofore contracted or that may be hereafter contracted by her said Husband." Newkirk admits that "it wounds her very soul" to state that all of her "Good Property consisting of Land and Negroes" has "been sold to discharge her said Husbands Debts" and "a great amount" of debts still remains unpaid.
