In 1852 Sterling Newsom died and Thompson & Randolph Newsom were appointed executors of his estate. The estate was to be divided among Newsom's six children, minus advances, and expenses. One of his grandchildren whose parent had died sued to receive a bequest based on the amount their mother, Elzira Mosley was to have been bequeathed.
