Notes / Description: 

Nancy Fauts was paid by McConnell to occupy land in the Ocoee district in 1837 until he legally had rights to it. John Kennedy tried to take possession, but was not entitled- because Fauts had occupied the land, McConnell had legal possession. The property had a cabin described as "very small . . . w/ no floor . . . No chimney to it_ there was no regular door, but there was a small opening at some distance off from the ground." The cabin was formerly a hen house or corn crib.
