Noting that "the Governor of this State Issued a proclamation offering one hundred Dollars" for Ned's capture, Bradford reports that he seized Ned in Sumter District and then transported him to Charleston, "in the month of September to the great hazzard of health & of his life." The petitioner also states that Ned "was tried, convicted, & executed for the offense above named."
