Petition #20882603


William Parker Jr. represents that he is "desirous of emancipating in due form of Law" his female slave named Rebecca, also known as Becky, who is "upwards of thirty years of age." He further represents that Becky, being an "honest faithful and diligent servant" and never having run away or committed any crime, is well "entitled to the benefits of the act" of 9th March 1807 relative to the emancipation of slaves. Parker therefore prays the court for an "order of notification" of his intention to emancipate, as required by law.

Result: Granted.
