Notes / Description: 

Plaintiff Geers and defendant Heck were the owners, as tenants in common, of several tracts of coal land in Campbell and Anderson counties. Geers owned 1/3 interest and Heck the other 2/3 interest. Geer claimed that Heck owed him several thousand dollars for rents, royalties, and profits made from the land for which Heck has never given Geer his 1/3 share as partial owner. There are 3 hand-drawn exhibit maps that show the tracts of land owned by the plaintiff and defendant.
