      It was on February 22, 1819 that SALLY, "a negroe slave, the property of Richard Southgate" was charged with murder. "In discharge of his recognizance, "Richard, who was the commonwealth attorney for Campbell County, "brought forward the prisoner to the Bar." Nathaniel G Pendleton was appointed commonwealth attorney pro tempore to prosecute Sally.

      On February 24, it was charged that "on the 4th day of February 1819, Sally a mulatto woman slave, about 18 years of age, the property of Richard Southgate, not having the fear of God before her eyes, but being seduced by the instigation of the Devil, did kill and murder, by drowning and suffication (sic), an infant male child, the offspring of the said Sally of which she had been previously delivered as the natural mother."

      The jury, consisting of John Rust, William McCoy, John Griffith, James Drysdale, John Drysdale, William McCarty, William Pickett, Frederick Klette, John Winston, David Rust, George Roberts and John Frazier, after hearing all the testimony, declared "Sally the prisoner at the Bar, not guilty."
