Scott Co. Chancery Court Case
On file at the VA. State Library
Jones vs. Rhoton
Paschal Jones vs. Erasmus D. Rhoton of Lexington Ky.
â€œThe Def. being on a visit to his relations in Scott Co. VA, and being sick and without funds and necessaries, wrote to his father Benjamin Rhoton of Lexington for a supply.â€â€¦â€¦.
(The father, Benjamin had relatives in Scott County to get him the money for which he said he would be responsible for.)
Orator (Paschal Jones) is the brother in law of Benjamin W. Rhoton, and Erasmus d. Rhoton got a blanket and saddle from Grimes Neil, and other necessities, but not until the orator gave security of $27.75 on Aug 29th 1836.
Erasmus Rhoton died abt Christmas of 1839 and Paschal Jones is asking that Elias, Ezekiel, and Elisha Rhoton should pay Benjamin W. Rhoton $85.00.
( Are Elias, Ezekiel and Elisha the sonâ€™s of Erasmus or his brothers, and that is why Paschal is asking for them to pay Benj. Back???)
