Notes / Description: 

In 1841, Graves entered 40 acres in Ocoee District, southwest corner of southwest quarter of sec. 10, 4th fractional township, south range, five east of basis line. But certificate of entry mistakenly omitted "fractional" & "south". Entry 4120, Grant 4085 Graves sold the land to McCoy who sold to John M. Dow who sold to Dennison in 1853. Cox then caused entry to be made for the land in 1854. Entry 9058, Grant 7477. Hence this suit.
