Notes / Description: 

In 1836, Henry was security in a bill executed by John Keys & Wm. Lowery payable to James Houston for $716. 1842, a judgment against defendants & plaintiff was granted to Houston in this amount for non-payment of bill. This case established that Henry has already satisfied his obligation, having paid the full $839.20 (original judgment + interest); Henry sought to recover this from William Lowery. Circuit court found in favor of S. Henry.
