Petition #11283606


Four citizens of Buncombe County seek to emancipate a mulatto slave named Ned in accordance with Benjamin Davidson's will. Noting that Ned "is geting advanced in years," the petitioners aver that Ned "has been a faithfull Servent" and that "he has been hired out about four years." They further state that "previous to the death of his mistress he lived with her and was an Obedient Servent and provided for her Comfort faithfully." A related petition reveals that Benjamin Davidson "made a will on the 14th of June 1824 and died shortly after."

Result: House: referred; "against".
