Notes / Description: 

In 1866 Byrn conveyed 2 tracts of land to Fowlkes, & soon after one was sold in chancery court to pay the debt of Byrn's purchase of the land from Mr. White. Following Byrn's death Fowlkes continued to profit on from leases on the remainder of the land. This suit was filed so that Fowlkes' ties to Byrn's estate might be settled.
