I found a petition (from Fold3.com in the Confederate Papers Relating to Citizens or Business Firms, 1861-65) of a family member for a receipt dated April 30th,1862. It was a receipt that acknowledged by a Charles (can't read the last name) for 100 pounds of meat sold to the Confederate Army for $8.00. The receipts states that the amount is correct and just and the account has not been paid.
The petition is made for the amount to be paid. How can I find out when the petition was made and if it was paid or not?
I have looked all over Ancestry and Fold3 and the National Archives as well as the Soldiers & Sailors database. But I don't think I am looking in the right place.
I am adding a link to the site where I found the petition
Thanks for the help!
