Duncan, Cora Buckner and Cicero Buckner, Ila Fruit and Monroe Fruit, Della Kimrey and George Kimrey, Ex Parte. (Frame 618-621; many other papers)
            Petitioners would show to the court: (1) that William Duncan late of Chatham Co. NC died July 9, 1883, leaving a will in which he bequeathed to his wife Susan Duncan during her natural life a parcel of land in Chatham Co. NC which said Wm. Duncan purchased of Wm. J. Moran and adj. lands of Zeno Johnson, Arthur Whitehead and others; (2) that said Susan Duncan died September 11, 1904, and your petitioners are the sole and only heirs to the said tract and are entitled to it in the following proportions: W.A. Duncan 1/4, Sally Johnson 1/4, Martha K. Lineberry and her husband W.A. Lineberry 1/4; Henry S. Duncan 1/44, Martha Hargrove and her husband J.J.

Duncan 1/44, Ila Fruit and her husband Monroe Fruit 1/44, Della Kimrey and her husband George Kimrey 1/44; (3) that petitioners before named are anxious to come into possession of their property interests in the said land and that the several interests in the same are too small for actual partition. Therefore, they pray that the court appoint R.B. Lineberry a commissioner to advertise and sell the land according to law and pay the proportions from the proceeds; and that the court appoint a surveyor to define the boundaries. Signed November 23, 1904. (FHL film 1,065,100)
      Application by Susan Duncan, widow of William Duncan (d.1883) vs. Wm. A. Duncan, exec., for year's support. Application that her husband, William Duncan, late of Chatham Co., died July last, had made will, that she married William Duncan in Sept. 1864, she has never had any children now living by her said husband, that the executor is a son by former marriage; dated 11 Dec. 1883.

      Susan Duncan vs. William A. Duncan, David S. Duncan, Sally Johnston and Martha K. Lineberry who are children of Wm. by previous marriage; Zeno Johnston, husband of Sally, and William A.

Duncan, David S. Duncan and Sally Johnston; that testator was quite an old man ... she petitioned for dower in the lands he gave his children after he married her; dated 5 March 1884. (frame 499)
      (MAD: William Duncan had promised his four children by his earlier marriage a share of his land before he married Susan, but he made the gift deeds to three of his children after he married Susan; Susan said she should have a share of the land since they were married at the time he made the gift deeds. The children disagreed and said the arrangements were made before his second marriage. The court agreed with the children, that Susan was not entitled to a dower interest. There are well over 100 pages of documents in this file.)
 

LAND RECORDS

Land records, North Carolina and Tennessee; indexes, 1600-1959; by NC Secretary of State, Land Grant Office (Placerville FHC on loan 1/4-5/2012)
      Land warrants are documents issued at local land offices to purchasers of public lands. When these warrants are surrendered, the buyers are issued conveyances (deeds). The land warrants (and other miscellaneous records) are organized by file numbers in alphabetical sequences of counties. Some of the counties are now Tennessee counties. These records are in packets. On each packet cover are spaces for the following information: file number, county, purchaser's name(s), number of acres, grant number, date issued, entry number, date entered, book number, page number & location. ... The key to finding the related packets are the file numbers.

COURT RECORDS

"Reports of cases argued and adjudged in the Supreme Court of North Carolina 1804-1810 inclusive" by A.D. Murphey of Orange County, Vol.1 (spine title "No. Carolina Reports [Vol.] 5 - Murphey's Law & Equity Vol.I); Vol.5, pgs.466 to 467 (California State Law Library, Sacramento, 1/2004)   AND   "NC Reports" Vol.5, 1804-1810, pg.315-318, July term, 1810 (NC Archives, Raleigh NC, 10/1985; MAD's extract; original court papers not in archives)
      MAD: These are a series of volumes of extracts of Supreme Court decisions which can later be cited in other court pleadings. Each volume is indexed by the names of the plaintiffs and defendants. Most states have a set of similar volumes for that state, usually found in law libraries. These references were found for me by Mrs. Grace Turner of Wilson, NC. The NC Archives has a master index on microfilm to all the cases for which it has the original documents filed with the court. It does not always have the originals.
      JAMES DUNCAN and wife v. The Administrator of PARISH SELF, deceased; From Chatham; Supreme Court of North Carolina; 5 N.C. 466; 1 Mur. 466; July, 1810, Decided.
      A gift of a chattel to a person, with a reservation to the donor of a life estate therein, is good, and vests a property in the donee in the event of his surviving the donor.
      Parish Self made a gift by parol of a negro girl slave to his daughter Elizabeth, reserving to himself the said negro during his life. He kept the said negro in his possession until his death, and his daughter survived him. She having intermarried with James Duncan, this action of detinue was brought by them against the administrators of the estate of Parish Self, to recover the said negro girl. The defendants insisted that no title vested in Elizabeth, the daughter, by the gift; that the reservation of the property to the donor during his life was in fact a reservation of the entire interest in the negro, and nothing was left for the daughter, inasmuch as the law will not allow a remainder to be created in a chattel after a life estate, except it be done by executory devise or by deed of trust. The case was sent to this Court upon the question, Whether the gift vested such an interest in Elizabeth, the daughter, as enables her husband and herself to recover the negro.
      By the Court. We are of opinion that the daughter, Elizabeth, having survived her father, the donor, the property in the negro girl vested absolutely in her at his death, and that the plaintiffs are entitled to judgment.

      Cataloged under Civil War, 1861-1865, pensions, indexes; does not say if Confederate or Federal, but probably Federal. Negative film, some cards much too faint or dark to read, some cards blurred or faded, particularly the service unit and the dates of application. Most of the very faint or dark cards were in a slightly different format, with space for years enlisted and discharged which were sometimes filled in. Many of these were for service in later years, although one or two were for service ca 1866.
      Name of soldier, alias, name of dependent widow or minor, service (military unit or units), date of filing, class (invalid or widow or minor or other), Application #, Certificate #, state from which filed (sometimes blank), attorney (sometimes blank, MAD: did not usually copy), remarks. Sometimes the "Invalid" or "Widow" class had an "s" added to it before the application #; occasionally the area for the service information included a circled "S". The minor's name was frequently that of the guardian rather than the minor.
      The military unit was frequently the Company Letter, the Regiment Number, sometimes US Vet Vol Inf. (US Veteran Volunteer Infantry), L.A. (Light Artillery), H.A. (Heavy Artillery), US C Inf (US Colored? Infantry), Cav. (Cavalry), Mil. Guards, V.R.C. (?Volunteer Reserve Corps?), etc. Sometimes there were several service units given.
      Cards appear to be arranged by the last name, first name, middle initial if any, and state (including "US") of service.
