    Seeking Court Records from Clay County, Missouri

    Joslyn McLaughlin Newbie

      Hello, I am looking for court records from 1828 in the matter of an enslaved woman named Annice, a slave, who was convicted of killing five children owned by Jeremiah Prior (Annice was also owned by Prior) of Clay County Missouri. Annice was hanged in August 1828 in the county seat of Liberty.  Any information you can provide will be welcome.  Thank you.
