Simon Miller pledged to John Nichols in 1805 to pay $640 within six months, in return for a fee simple deed on a tract of land. Miller then created a conveyance to Simon Miller, jr. for the same land. Miller, sr. was accused of trying to defraud Nichols by tricking him into land that he would never rightfully own.
