Notes / Description: 

Graham received a tax deed and the validity of title is in dispute. The tax deed is dated Dec. 1867. The deed is made prima facia of the facts required by the applicable law (Act of 1843, Sect. 623-630). Hightower et al. v. Freedle established that land reported only for the non-payment of taxes resulted in a void deed.
