Stephen Kindrall, "a free man of colour born and descended from Sally Kindrall a free
white woman in the State of North Carolina," sues Anthony Stoutenborough for freedom.
Kindrall states that while in his infancy he was bound out "until he arrived to the age of twenty-one years".
However, before attaining said age, he was "sold by the person he was bound to one
Deshazo as a slave and taken from the State of North Carolina to the State of Georgia".
After Deshazo died, he was again sold and now is owned by Anthony Stoutenborough
of Bill County, Alabama. Kindrall asks the court to award him his freedom.
