Notes / Description: 

Nolan sued H.D. Powell's heirs (widow Victoria & 2 children: L.W. & U.H.) to recover 3 tracts (369 total acres), on the middle fork of Barton's creek, detraining title back to 1854 but not all the way back to State grant, so court ruled in Powells' favor, even though they presented no proof themselves.
