1837
0414 (Accession # 20683704). Greene County, Georgia. Silas Stallings, a minor, sues by his guardian, William Greer. He was the owner of twelve slaves collectively valued at $7,300. He “casually lost” the slaves, who came into the possession of Thomas G. Janes. The defendant has refused to deliver the Negroes to Stallings and, according to the petitioner, “converted and disposed of said negro Slaves to his own use.” Stallings sues for $15,000 in damages.

1839
0547 (Accession # 20683909). Greene County, Georgia. Thomas G. Janes, administrator of the estate of Moses Stallings, deceased, states that Stallings died in 1836, leaving as his heirs his wife, Mary, and his children: John, Mary, and Moses. In 1837, Silas McLane, otherwise called Silas Stallings, claimed seven slaves belonging to the estate. Janes states that he had no record of McLane’s claim or title to the slaves and, therefore, refused to deliver them. McLane, through his guardian, William Greer, initiated a suit against Janes in the Superior Court at the March 1838 Term. The jury found in favor of Janes; however, McLane appealed the decision and the verdict was reversed. Janes states that McLane, reputed to be the illegitimate son of Moses Stallings, provided false witnesses and forged affidavits to support his argument in the appeals case. Janes asserts that he is now able to provide evidence to refute McLane’s claim to Stallings’s estate. He requests an injunction to prevent the verdict from the appeal suit from being executed and seeks a new trial.
