Petition Corrections (cww.00157, cww.00158, and cww.00036)

Our original transcriptions for petitions cww.00157 and cww.00158 identified Samuel Scott as the petitioner in both cases. Based on a closer reading of the petition documents and the name listed in the commissioners’ final report, the petitioner’s name for these petitions has been corrected from “Samuel Scott” to “Samuel Stott.”

Additionally, our transcription of Charles Vinson’s petition (cww.00036) originally omitted a schedule submitted by Vinson, listing ages, values, and personal descriptions of the former slaves for which he claimed compensation. This schedule has been added to our transcription and can be found here.
