Petition #11481927


Obadiah Going, a free man of color, states that he "is unfortunately a descendant of persons of mixed Blood and altho he believes the number of Generations have passed from his ancestors, to entitle your petitioner under the act of Assembly to the privileges of a citizen," he "is deprived of many of the privileges of a free citizen." Going therefore prays that a law be passed "giving to your petitioner the privileges of a citizen."
