Biography*1858 Of Abel Alderson, scalawag from Jefferson county-- afterward appointed to the circuit bench by Governor Alcorn--quite a curious and edifying story was published. Under the ante-bellum code of Mississippi free persons of color were forbidden to reside in the state. As public sentiment winked at its evasion, the harsh law was very rarely enforced. Alderson brought suit thereunder in 1858, to compel Mary Garnet, colored, to leave. She was a popular and successful boarding housekeeper in Fayette, and Alderson owed her a considerable board bill for which she sued him. Whereupon he sought to evade payment by driving his creditor out of the state. She met this move by selling herself to a citizen of the county rather than leave her old home. But as a slave she lost her right to sue and Alderson beat his board bill.4
