Petition #20686023


Charles J. Jenkins and William A. Walton are administrators of the estate of John McKinney. Jenkins and Walton obtained permission from the court to sell the land and negroes belonging to the estate on 6 October 1859. The estate is said to be worth "one hundred & fifty thousand dollars, or other large sum." The property included the family residence in Augusta, a "house and lot in the village of Summerville" and nine slaves. Now, Jenkins and Walton claim that they are unable to legally sell this property because of several pending court cases involving the deceased McKinney. Jenkins and Walton seek to subpoena all of those involved in "other matters therein before charged."

Result: Granted.
