Part 1:

United States of America State of Louisiana

Parish of St Marys —

       Be it known that before me John Moore Parish Judge and Judge of the Parish Court of the sd Parish of St. Mary’s personally appeared Abraham Riggs a resident of this Parish + State afore., at — house — Mr John D Mathias in sd Parish + State for the sd Riggs, being unable from age + bodily infirmity to attend Court who being duly sworn according to law, does on his oath make the following declaration in order to obtain the benfits of the act of Congress —– June 7th 1832.

From here we see a few different names: John Moore, the judge; John D Mathias who perhaps was a friend, neighbor of Abraham’s.

We also see that at the time of the declaration Abraham was old and unable to go to Court personally.
