    Notes 
    • 1826, Dec 16-22 -- Session Journal, House of Delegates, Richmond, VA Page 33, 55
      Elizabeth Barrett (of Moore County, NC) petitioned the VA House of Delegates for the pardon of her husband, John Barrett confined in the penitentiary for five years, two and a half years ago for stealing a horse. She petitioned "that she is in extreme poverty, both now and at the time of conviction, with six small children to maintain, and recently the little wearing apparel herself and her children were possessed of, has been consumed by fire, and but for the kindness of her neighbors, both herself and her children must have suffered for the necessaries of life." The penitentiary committee rejected the petition.
