Additional Defendants: O. W. Roberts. Plaintiff Robert filed suit against her former guardian who she claimed owed her $441.01 in the final settlement of his charge in 1859 and also for her interest in the estate of her grandmother, Temperance Whitley, which she sold to Mason for $500, not realizing the greater value of the estate. She charged Mason with fraud and forgery and her husband, O. W. Roberts, with purchasing certain property of the estate without her consent or knowledge.
