Scott County Chancery Court Records
On file at the Virginia State Library
Index Number 1849 – 001
John A. Hall and Wm. B. Neil (The firm of Neil and Hall)
Vs. Abraham Lane
States that Abraham has departed from the Commonwealth of VA, debt unpaid, owed $244.62
50 Acres, in being the same land that James Lane bought of Abraham Lane and he from Robert Speer.
Conveyance made from Speer to Abraham but not from Abraham to James Lane.
Neil and Hall bought for $490.00
I am confused exactly what this one was about. Something to do with needing Abraham to make the deed to his son James, so he could convey to them, but I don’t know exactly what the 244.62 debt was all about. I think some papers must have been missing.
