Indiana J. Wilkins had been left land in a will and Hiram V. Hooper was the trustee for the land. The county sold the land to W. M. Butler claiming the taxes were unpaid for the year of 1883. Wilkins had receipts for tax payment for the years 1883-1886. It was also claimed in the case that the county did not follow protocol when selling the land as they didn't advertise it or sell it off in parcels.
