1832 Sept 7 – Job Going admr of Benjamin Palmore decd, pltf, v. Thomas B Goyne and James Christian. Trover. This action is brought to recover damages for the conversion of a certain negro man slave by the name of Harry the property of the estate of the said Benjamin decd with a value of 500 dollars. Benjamin Palmore “casually lost the said negro man Harry out of his possession and the said negro man Harry afterwards . . . came to the possession of the said Defts by finding . . . said Defts well knowing the said negro man Harry to be the property of the said Benjamin Pelmore in his lifetime . . . Defts have not delivered said negro man Harry despite often requests they do so. (It appears in the next paragraph they are alleging a 2nd negro man named Harry as well was taken – but not clear if this is the same, or a repeat).
Defts plead “not guilty”. Jury trial found Defts guilty. Damages for 518 dollars plus costs.
Pltf introduced a bill of sale . . . executed by Deft Goyne to Plamore the Pltfs decd intestate. It was not proved that the negro boy ever went into the possession of Palmore. It was proved that the negro was not delivered at the time of sale. It was proved that most usually the negro was in the possession of Goyne who executed the Bill of Sale. That at one time the negro was hired out in the lifetime of Pelmore but by whom it was not known. It was proved that Palmore died in July or August 1830. It was also proved that after the death of Palmore, Goyne remained in possession of the negro until 1832 when Goyne executed to Deft Christian a bill of sale for said boy Harry and delivered the possession at the time of sale. That Christian executed to Goyne his promissory note for 450 dollars for said boy. There was no other evidence respecting the note and it did not appear whether it was paid or not. It was proved that prior and at the time of executing the said Bill of Sale by Goyne to Palmore, Goyne was embarrassed and in failing circumstances – that the negro was not delivered to Palmore nor seen in his possession by the witnesses. That no money was paid by Palmore to Goyne at the time of executing the Bill of Sale, but his note given for the amt expressed in the bill of sale. After this evidence the Deft Christian moved the Court to have the administrators of Palmore who was present in Court sworn as a witness to establish four facts in his knowledge – . . . sale of the negro Harry by Deft Goyne to Palmore was for the purpose of preventing his sale for the debts of Deft Goyne. Plaintiff objected, and was sustained by court, which Deft objected. Some time after sale to Christian the boy was some time in Goyne’s possession and some times in Christians. . . . it was difficult to tell in whose possession the boy was whether Goyne or Christian . . . they usually lived together. . . . At one time since the sale to Christian, deft Goyne hired him out and recd price of hire for said boy. . . . no evidence that the note given by Goyne to Christian was ever paid. . . . it was generally known in the neighborhood where Defts resided that Palmore or his estate had a claim on the negro.
Bill of Sale produced dated: 31st day of December 1829 – Thomas Goyne sold negro Harry to Benjamin Palmore for 400 dollars.
Bill of Sale produced dated 5th of May 1832 – Thomas B Goyne sold negro Harry to James Christian for 450 dollars.

Nancy A Winn’s maiden name is Nancy A Cook, she is the daughter of Robert Cook and Sarah Baxter Going.

Compare above Nancy A Winn’s 1850 US Census with Dennis Cook’s 1850 US Census. Also, review Abner Winn’s Last Will and Testament.

In Abner Winn’s will you see that James D Cook is the son of Dennis Cook and Nancy Palmer, and that Abner is raising James D Cook with his wife Nancy A Cook Winn (Dennis’ sister, who would be James D Cook’s aunt).  The Cook children in Abner Winn’s household are the children of Dennis Cook – they are Adeline Cook age 10, and James D Cook age 5. Abner Winn writes his will on October 31, 1855, and he mentions James D Cook, but why not Adeline Cook? Because earlier in the month 15-16 year old Adeline Cook was married to Israel Hood on Oct 2, 1855 (see record below). She was already out of the household, and James D Cook was still needing his educations and training.

Dennis Cook’s first wife, Nancy Palmer, must have died some time before 1848 as Dennis Cook is remarried on October 10, 1848 (see below). His 1850 US Census shows Robert A Cook age 7, and Sarah Cook age 6 who must have been his children with Nancy Palmer Cook, along with James D Cook and Adeline Cook that are living with his sister Nancy A Winn and her husband Abner Winn.
