Petition #20681501


John Screven is the executor of Charles Odingselles's estate. According to Screven, "the only fit land to plant with the negroes of said Estate was devised to the widow of the said Odingselles," and he "has been planting with the negroes of the said estate, on hired land" which is of poor quality. He has recently accepted an offer to purchase, for $2,500, a better tract of land. He asks the court to allow this purchase, "conveying the said premises to the children of the deceased Testator."
