Benjamin,
Please contact me regarding the slavery case, Timberlake v. Osborn et al [including your ancestor, Wm Jones].

The trial took place in Detroit, 1850 and ended in a hung jury.

My ancestors, Ishmael Lee & David T. Nicholson, were defendants along with yours.
Happy to exchange information.

Debian Marty
