An Act of Separation 1785 (6)

The petition continues:

"We firmly rely, that the undiminished Lustre of that Spark, which kindled the flame of Liberty, and guided the United States of America to Peace & Independence, will direct the Honourable Body, to whom we Appeal for redress of Manifest grievances, to embrace the Singular Occasion, reserved for them, by Devine Providence; to Originate a precedent, which may Liberalize the Policy of Nations and lead to the emancipation of enslaved millions.-"

Almost to the end...what a group of individuals to join in this petition.  Will try and identify the signers who are from Jefferson, Fayette, Lincoln, and Nelson counties in the "district of Kentucky" 1785.
