Petition #20484404


Samuel Davidson and Mary Chapman seek the settlement of an estate issue regarding the estate of Lewis Davidson, who died intestate. The estate included "some old family servants" which the family was forced to sell in order to make payments on several debts. The petitioners now ask the court to allow them to sell the unimproved real estate so that they may be able to pay some of the considerable debt owed due to the maintenance of the family. They ask that the surplus proceeds be used for the future support and education of the minors.

Result: Granted.
