Petition #20784305


James McFerren states that he purchased two slaves, a mother and daughter named Eliza and Elizabeth, from William and James Cochran in January 1843. The mother is and, he alleges, must have been gravely ill at the time of the purchase; he expects her death any day. McFerren asks that the Cochrans' property be sold if they are unable to reimburse him his purchase price of $290. He also asks for an injunction to prevent the Cochrans from conveying said property out of the jurisdiction.
