MURRAY, ISAAC vs Carlton Welborn. Georgia Lincoln Co. By
virtue of a commission from Superior Court of Wilkes Co., we
have caused Margaret Jeter and Frances Gartrell to come
before us to answer interrogatories in above case Aug. 16,
1825. Margaret Jeter says she was present at the marriage of
Isaac Murray and Matilda Gartrell, she heard Jos. Gartrell
father of Matilda Murray give Matilda slaves Martha, Davy
and Ned a few weeks after their marriage, the day that Isaac
Murray moved from the house of his father-in-law Jos.
Gartrell, and my father Francis Gartrell, my first husband
Jere. Gartrell, Jos. and John Gartrell were present as
witnesses. Jos. Gartrell the father asked that Martha and
Ned be left with him till he paid a debt to Abram Simons,
and Davy as long as Jos. lived. I remember Isaac Murray did
receive from his father-in-law Jos. Gartrell three slaves, a
woman and her two children about the time he started to move
to Tenn., may be the same day, sometime in July 1814. I was
present, but heard no conditions that said slaves were to be
returned at any time. Francis Gartrell says he (or she) was
present and called on by my brother Jos. Gartrell to witness
the gift of three slaves, Martha and her two boys Ned and
Davy, that he wished to keep the first two till he paid
Abram Simons and Davy may be during his life as a mill boy.
This was soon after the marriage of Isaac Murray and Matilda
Gartrell and the day they started to Tenn. in June 1814.
Joseph gave them three slaves independent of the above named
and no conditions of returns made.
