Petition #20184901


In 1823 and 1824, Margaret (Peggy) Price received from Williams McClellan of Hancock County, Georgia, two slaves—Mariah and Jerry respectively--through a life estate. After her death, the slaves were to descend to her heirs. The slaves were placed in the possession of one of the trustees, Henry McClellan. Now Henry McClellan has died, and Margaret Price fears that, with nobody to manage her slave property, her estate will be wasted. She asks the court to permit her to bring Jerry, Mariah and Mariah's children and grandchild into Alabama, and to appoint a new trustee for the estate.
