Four Hawkins County residents "became the security for James Bradley," a deputy sheriff who absconded to Texas. They report that the said Bradley failed to return a list of insolvents and that they "were forced into a Judgement" and made to pay $242.75 to the state. They further represent "that what portion of taxes that were due and owing upon said lists were either insolvent or were otherwise unavailable, from the removal of negroes change of land owners &c." The petitioners therefore "pray your honorable body ... to refund to them that portion of said Jugement paid by them into the Treasury of the State."
Result: Recommendation for rejection.
