Notes / Description: 

In 1847 Lafferty purchased land from Edmond Collins in Grainger County. The sale was not registered with the sheriff, & the tenants of the land were not notified of the sale. The suit argues that because of these details the sale was void, & land ownership was still rightly Conn's.
