Notes / Description: 

Anderson purchased a house and lot on Axie Ave. in Memphis from Langford. At the time of the purchase, the property was mortgaged to the Goodman Bros. for about $500. Anderson and Langford set up a contract for him to pay her $50 a month until a total unpurchased price of $1500 was paid. Langford would pay the mortgage to the Goodman Bros. until it was paid off. After Anderson had already moved in and paid Langford $257.25, Langford tried to up the selling price to $2500.
