Notes / Description: 

Bastardy case. Serena Samsel, a single woman, accused William Jacob Conn of fathering her illegitimate child. John Creach testified that Serena had previously borne two bastard children and that she was known as a tattler who told stories. The witness Almarine [?] Winkle questioned Serena's general character for chastity. Austin Canady admitted to keeping company with Serena and that he "took liberties with her person."
