Notes / Description: 

Documents from two separate cases were tied together: a brief from a Shelby County Probate case (Rudolph C. Bacher et al. v. A. H. Stratmann, Admin.) and a 380-page Chester County Circuit Court case (Carolyn Ronsey v. Mobile & Ohio Rail Road Co.). The case number was on a loose sheet in the folder, so it is possible that it does not belong to this case. The suit was filed to recover $5000 damages for the "wrongful killing" of claimant's husband, Dave Rensey when he was walking along the track.
