Jeremiah "Jerry" Gill, Jefferson, MS

PAR #: 11083005
Location: Jefferson County, Mississippi Year: 1830

Abstract: Working and saving for many years, free man of color Jeremiah Gill purchased his wife, Amy, and daughter, Betsey. Now being "advanced in years," he asks the legislature for an act of emancipation for his family. He feared that if he were to die his wife and daughter might "through the tyranick grasp and relentless cupidity(sic) of some unfeeling wretch, be deprived of that portion of liberty, which the sweat of your petitioner's humble brow has purchased for them."
