Orphans' Court

On application, by petition, in writing, of Jonathan KOFFMAN, to me the subscriber, one of the justices of the Orphans' Court in Frederick County, in the recess of Frederick County Court, for the benefit of the act of Assembly, entitled, "An act for the relief of sundry insolvent debtors," passed at November session, 1805, and the several supplements thereto; a schedule of his property, and a list of his creditors so far as he can ascertain them on oath, being annexed to his said petition, and being satisfied that the said petitioner hath resided in the state of Maryland for two years next preceding the date of his petition; and the said petitioner having taken the oath prescribed by law, entered into bond with security, for his appearance in Frederick County court, on the second Monday of December next, to answer such allegations as his creditors may propose to him. And having also executed to a trustee, by me appointed a good and sufficient deed for all his property, real, personal, and mixed, (the necessary wearing, apparel, and bedding of himself land family, excepted), and delivered the same to the said trustee, and the said trustee having also executed a bond for the faithful discharge of his trust, and certified the delivery into his hands of all the property of said petitioner, mentioned in his schedule. -- I do therefore order and adjudge that the said Jonathan KOFFMAN be discharged from arrest on any civil process, until the second Monday in December next; and that the said petitioner, by causing a copy of this order to be inserted in some newspaper printed in Frederick-town, for three months successively, before the said second Monday of December next, give notice to his creditors to be and appear at the day and place aforesaid to show cause, if any they have, why the said Jonathan KOFFMAN should not have the benefit of the act of assembly and the supplements aforesaid, as prayed. Given under my hand this 18th day of May, 1831.
