Crimes of note include John Crawford, Jailer of Mobile Co., fined for the negligent escape of a prisoner from the jail; Jesse Farrar, Sheriff of Monroe Co., charged with neglect of official duties; Moses M. Posey convicted of passing counterfeit two dollar bills; Sally Kelly, a pregnant woman who committed larceny in Shelby Co.; five slaves belonging to Major Elijah Montgomery of Mobile Co. who murdered their overseer L.

Other persons with numerous requests for clemency include Robert and Hoykey Bevil, Samuel Calhoun, John Downey, Robert Farrell, George Goodwin, Hanson H. Hurt, Levi Leonard, Charles MacKay, William Moyler, William Price, James Rogers, Joseph Scarborough, Henry Tunnage and Thomas Woodfin.
