Petition #20484406


Robert J. Dillon, administrator of the estate of Henry V. Garretson, deceased, seeks the settlement of an estate issue. Dillon states that Henry Garretson was a creditor of the American Colonization Society. Remsen Garretson, Henry Garretson's son and executor, made an arrangement with the American Colonization Society for payment through a cash settlement and the conveyance of several lots in the city of Washington. The deed, however, mistakenly granted the funds and lots to Remsen Garretson, now deceased, and his heirs rather than to the estate of Henry Garretson. Dillon asks the court to order the sale of the lots and to place the proceeds in a trust for the benefit of Henry Garretson's heirs.

Result: Granted.
