Hello. I am seeking information on a complaint filed in the superior court of law and chancery for Lee Co. appears according to a paper i have in Chancery Order Book 1--1832-1868--page 90.. It is a suit re-filed by my gggrandfather Edley Rogers and his brothers and sisters concering rights to land on Blackwater and an intrest of Blackwater saltworks..their father Joseph Rogers had it seems made a deal with Old William Roberts for this land but Joseph died before title was changed to his name.. His widow Susannah filed the orginal in 1819 and settled out of court..the complaint is against Both Roberts and Rogers and Lawsons... Susannah had by this time remarried a James Walling... Has anyone run across this?
