Abstract: Two emancipated slaves, Lewis and Jack Fullerton--ages thirty-nine and forty-three--seek to remain in Virginia, with their slave wives and other family members. They are leasing a farm on the Mud River, near the Great Kanawha Turnpike. "The product of this farm goes to supply the neighboring markets, and to support their aged mother, their brother Richard, sister Anna, and themselves. They also note that in 1834, when their former owner accidentally fell into the Mud River, they saved his life.
