Notes / Description: 

E. B. & George are married. E.B.'s son Earnest (born before her marriage to George) was killed when, as a passenger on Def's train, he fell from or was knocked off the train, which Pla. claim was due to Def's negligence. Earnest was travelling from Bonaqua Station to Warner Station on the Centerville Branch Road. Court dismissed case on grounds related to ability of E.B. to bring suit as administrator while under coverture of marriage. Pla. appealed to SC.
