Notes / Description: 

Other plaintiff: James S. F. Thomas. The Thomas's are brothers who were willed some land and later sold it to Northcrop, who subdivided it and sold it to a number of buyers (the other defendants). However, Northcrop was not able to pay the Thomas's because the people he sold the property to did not pay him. The brothers are seeking to have the land returned to them in lieu of some subsequent payment.
