Notes / Description: 

Add. Def. in error: J. D. Walton, Mrs. J. D. Walton and W. G. Gray. It appears that there are additional Def. in error but the names are not listed. In this instance, four similar cases were tried together. Defendants in error sued the city for laying a cement sidewalk in front of their property and above the natural grade of the street. The city then filled in the lots with dirt, destroying grass and causing houses to remain moist and decay. Map of Union Ave. between Hickory St. and Orchard Knob St.
