Notes / Description: 

Named defendant was an agent for the Security Fire Insurance Co. of Louisville, KY who sold (Jan. 5, 1869) Mason an amount of stock in Security Fire Insur. Co. worth $2,000. Mason paid for this stock by transferring a lot in Springfield, TN worth $800 to Burghardt & wife, and also gave a note for $1200. Additional defendants were B. Duey & wife, and J. Springer, the 2nd & 3rd successive holders of the deed to the Springfield lot. Mason claimed fraud since the insur. Co. stock was worthless and deeds void.
