Dispute re 70-acre tract in which Angeline (aka Evangeline) had life estate & her 5 minor children (Lester Hixon Maney; Leon Hixon; & Chloey, Virginia & Earl Kennemer) had remainder, all deeded to them by Angeline's dad John L. Clark (still living), w/ reversion to his descendants if Angeline had no heirs. Angeline & husband Alonzo (dad of the 5 minor children) sued for court's permission to sell remaining 30 acres of the tract (40 acres previously sold to TVA who condemned it to build Chickamauga Dam).
