Notes / Description: 

3 folders. Original case filed in 1874 for a dispute over land formerly owned by J. Draper, which Cox alleged Fink had fraudulently taken by a land deed from the sheriff. Montgomery was the executor of J. Draper (dec.) and filed a bill against Cox as a creditor to the estate. Later, Fink filed a bill against Cox to prevent him from cutting timber from the said land on the ground that Fink was the rightful owner. The cases were consolidated to render a final decree on the land owner.
