Re: Slavery etc database
In Response To: Re: Slavery etc database ()

I'm still I'm scrolling through TN... here's a good one:

Record # 77 matching search criteria.

PAR#: 11482702

To Whom Addressed: To the hon. the General Assembly of the State of Tennessee

Location: Unknown, TN

Year: 1827

Petitioner(s) Color Gender
Joshua Hadley White Male

Subject: American Revolution; family, slaveholders; estate; emancipation; heirs

Slave[s]: Stephen; Phil; Silvey; Catherine; Clinton; Nelly; Washington

Abstract: Revolutionary War veteran Joshua Hadley asks that seven of his slaves be emancipated rather than go to his six "ungrateful and cruel" children. Only one of his six children will even speak to him, he states. He asks that Stephen, Phil, Silvey, and Catherine be freed after his death and that Clinton, Nelly, and Washington be freed after the death of his wife, Hannah Hadley.

Location Description: Legislative Petitions

Petition Result: "reported reasonable"

I'm sure that Stephen, Phil, Silvey, Catherine, Clinton, Nelly, and Washington were grateful for those ungrateful children :)
