Notes / Description: 

Additional Defendant: John W. Hall. Webb executed a note to J. Boyd Hall for a loan of $825, which she secured with a trust deed for a property containing a house and lot in Knoxville. When she was unable to pay the note and interest the defendants put the property up for sale. Webb claimed that the notes were void because the terms, unbeknownst to her, were "usurious" and unlawful.
