Notes / Description: 

This case is bound up in fraud, landownership, inheritance, and morality. Disentangling the charges and facts may require professional interpretation. Netherland's attorneys painted him as a "man of large heart and noble soul"" who did not deserve to lose his land. Others involved were F. D. Alexander (executor of Nancy Dalzell), John Blevins, W. C. Kyle, R. Chestnut, and Netherland's children, viz.: Eliza N. Heiskell, Margaret N. Stamps, and John M. Netherland.
