Petition #20681704


John Bramblett contends that, by right of his wife Elizabeth, he is entitled to one-fourth of her father's estate. John Ford, Elizabeth's father, died intestate. Mary Ford, John Ford's widow, and Thomas Cook have produced a will that Bramblett charges is a forgery. The will is currently being contested and Bramblett believes it will be ruled void. Meanwhile, Bramblett asserts, Mary Ford and one Jesse Patterson have taken possession of John Ford's eight slaves, valued at $3,000, and intend to leave the court's jurisdiction. Bramblett asks that Ford and Patterson answer his allegations and that they be prevented from removing the slaves from the state until the estate dispute is settled.
