    SUITS BY, FOR AND OVER NEGROES IN ANTE BELLUM DAYS

    The slavery question was not only a troublesome political question, but it caused any amount of trouble in the courts of Missouri, and especially in one of the old slaveholding counties like Boone. The property rights in slaves and the prohibition of a slave from testifying bothered the lawyers then like damage suits and suits of unlawful combinations do now.

    License of Free Negro. In accordance with the provisions with chapter 123, R.S. Mo. 1845, entitled “Free Negroes and Mulattoes”, the county court of Boone county on September 9, 1850. Made the following order in regard to a well known Columbia citizen (see county court record book “I”, page 571):

    “John Bateste Lange, a free man of color, thirty-seven years of age, five feet, seven and three-fourths inches high, of yellow complexion, by profession a butcher, came into court and made application for a license to reside within this state and it appearing to the court that he is of the class of persons who may obtain such license, that he is of good character and behavior, and he having further more entered into bond as the law directs with James Shannon his security in the penalty of one hundred dollars, it is ordered by the court that such license be granted him”.

    John Batest Lange was the father of John Lange, now of Kansas City, the manager of Blind Boone.

    Moved to Columbia in 1850 to be near to his slave wife and children (Grenz 1979, 21, 23).

Mrs. Greene was succeeded by a colored man of Connecticut, who afterwards became the son-in-law of Mr. Lange, having married his daughter Cynthia.
