Notes / Description: 

Add. Defendants: A.D. Craig. A parcel of land was willed to Roberts, but an 11-acre tract was left off and became a part of Bird's land. When Roberts bought land from Bird, the said tract was supposedly included in the deed, but later Bird contested the sale. Craig, being county sheriff, dispossessed Roberts of the land that was deeded and willed to him, including houses built on the property.
