Additional defendants: Hampton Browder, Alexander Crackett (men of color), and John & Emilla Baker. Alfred Davis died in 1865 and left 100 acres to his children Emilla Baker & Rachel Norvell. Plaintiff later bought entire undivided interest from defendants for $800. The defendants failed to hand over the deed and therefore had to pay the plaintiff back the $800. The suit is for failure to pay the notes back.
