Dear Mr. Kelly,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the Records of District Courts of the United States (Record Group 21) and located the Minute Book, 1801 - 1863 of the DC District Courts. The book may include information about any freedom suits filed and/or tried. For access to or copies of these records, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For DC Jail committal records for 1850 to 1934, please contact the DC Archives.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
