Petition #20784215


In 1836 Throckmorton and Everett purchased slaves for $9500 from Thomas W. Fry, now deceased. Fry guaranteed that the slaves were of sound mind and body, but upon delivery the slaves Washington, George, Lavinia, Jordan, and the child of Patty were found to be "unsound" and "affected with the same disease which is called by medical men scrofula." The child of Patty has since died, and Washington and Jordan are expected to soon die. Throckmorton and Everett ask that the administrators of Fry's estate be "injoined & restrained from collecting sd. note for $1000 until a final hearing."

Result: Granted; appealed; reversed and remanded; dismissed.
