Notes / Description: 

Crosland sued Hugh L. McDaniel who then died intestate. Crosland was awarded $456 in damages. McDaniel had only $200 worth of property, eighty acres set aside for a dower. Crosland accused McDaniel of purposely refusing to register land so that it may not have a lien placed upon it. Crosland sued to settle the debt owed him by the McDaniel estate.
