p2 (10) Solomon Wilson (B/18) 20 Aug 1771 Feb Ct 1775 “late of Norfolk Town in Virge”
Daughter Ann Wilson – all my debts due me in North Carolina and any residue of my estate after payment of my debts. I brough an action against James Ivey eleven years ago for a large sum of money, which was dismissed when my lawyer was bribed. My lawyer paid 600 pounds to Col. Samuel Boush and then bought a parcel of land on which he built a brick house, and also bought a Negro. The said Ivey went to Paramarrabo on the coast of Surrinam when I sent a pilate (sic) with him, and he sold all my cargo for cash and paid me not more than wages due to the saylors (sic) and this is the reason I left Virginia. I offered William Freeman the other half of the money which should be recovered from the said Ivey if he would bring suit againts him in my name as he married my daughter Tabitha, but he refused. To my daughter Tabitha Freeman – one shilling. My demands against the estate of James Ivey, dec’d, are to be equally divided between my son Lemuel, my daughter Mason, my daughter Elizabeth and my daughter Ann.
Ex. daughter Ann Wlson, John Duke, Esq. John lawrence, Gent.

I sold ten Negroes to Mr. Andrew Mead in Wmburgh, he was then a member of the Assembly. He paid me in part and gave a note on John Holloway which I refused and a note on John Randolph which I also refused. When the above sum is recovered it shall be paid to my daughter Ann Wilson.
