Petition #11680002


Maryland slaveholder Dekar Thompson seeks permission to bring his slaves into Virginia. Recently land located in Fauquier County has been purchased for him by the executors of the estate of a relative with the same name. He states that he could sell his Maryland slaves and purchase new ones in Virginia, but he claims that as a person who has "raised and brought them up," he is "attached" to his slaves "and they to him."
