Petition #20485603


William Henry Jones, a free man of color, states that in June 1849, he purchased a piece of land from Benjamin Taylor for $140, payable in five years. Jones avers that he is in possession of the land and has consistently made payments on the debt. He asserts that Taylor has refused to accept the remaining balance of $92.25 plus interest and has refused to execute a deed of conveyance. Jones requests that Taylor be summoned to answer his complaint and asks the court to order Taylor to convey the land to him.
