Notes / Description: 

Thomas Berry died indebted to McGhee, but owned valuable land in Blount County. The debt was sued upon several times, & the estate was settled. Montgomery & Edward Lynch worked together to sell the land, but the sale may have cheated McGhee out of recovering the debt. However, the court ruled that Lynch was right in selling the land & that Berry had not been cheated.
