Notes / Description: 

Additional plaintiffs: I. R. King, John B. King. Robert Mann is listed as "a minor, being about 12 years of age, and has no regular guardian." He is the stepson of J. W. Taylor. Robert's mother, Mattie Mann, was Taylor's second wife. Taylor claims that he wanted Robert to share in his estate equally with his six children. When he purchased a tract of land, the deed was made in such a way that it listed Robert as one of the owners of the land. He only discovered the error when he tried to sell the land.
