Notes / Description: 

Original bill was filed by Fleming, Rhinesmith & Simons against Burgess and wife for partition of a 40,000 acre tract of land in Monroe County that Fleming claimed 25/32th of. Burgess and wife denied the partition right and claimed 11/32th of tract. The plaintiffs amended and refiled the bill to clear the title and reassert their claim to the partition and portion of ownership. The Burgesses filed a cross bill showing their ownership portion and that of other partial owners.
