General Petition Information

Abstract: Eulalie Simon and her husband, Michel Papillon, free people of color, petition to recover a debt from Charles Simon, also a free person of color. Charles borrowed $716.14 from Eulalie on 22 November 1822, providing a mortgage on a tract of land in the "Grand Prairie of Opelousas" as security. While Charles has paid one installment of the debt, he has "wholly refused to pay" the remaining $616.14. Therefore, Eulalie asks that Charles be condemned to repay the debt and that the mortgaged land be
seized and sold to satisfy the debt.
