Notes / Description: 

William Thomas obtained a attachment against George Walker, prosecuting for the sum of $500. When Walker failed to pay in full, the sheriff of Wmson County seized his land, which was unfair as the land was worth far more than the debt. Walker sold the land to the Perkinses, but Overton also had an offer to pay the judgement.
