Petition #11282101


One hundred seventy-five Orange County residents represent that Elisha Cate "was Charged with giving" a "Slave Belonging to a Mrs Ramsey" a "forged Pass and was Convicted and Punished." The petitioners affirm that said "Punishment which he Suffered has Rendered him Incompetent to give Evidence." Noting that he "is the father of a large family of Children," they "pray your Honourable Body will pass an act to Restore the Elisha Cate to Credit."

Result: Rejected.
