Petition #20184514


Prior to their marriage in 1839, Elizabeth Huggins and Gaius Brach signed a prenuptial agreement securing Elizabeth's nineteen slaves in trust for her "sole & separate use & benefit." Elizabeth states that both before and after the marriage, Gaius hired out the slaves and collected the wages without making a separate account to her. Now, following his death, his executor William S. Humphrey also refuses to present a separate account. Elizabeth sues the executor to force him to turn over the profits from the hiring of her trust slaves.
