Index Number 1850-008
Kane and Robinette
Vs. Patrick Neil and Henry Tarter
Henry S. Kane Complains: Patrick Neal, formerly of said Co. is indebted the sum of (originally had been written $99.00 but had $85.00 written over it.) Orator further states that the said Patrick Neil is no longer a Resident of this Commonwealth and at this time is non resident of this State.
MY NOTE: The other dialouge of this case was that William Horton, Enoch and Elisha Pendleton owed Patrick money and Kane wanted the court to transfer what they owed Patrick to him for what Patrick owed him, since Patrick was not living there any longer.
Patrick Neil answers: He has been a resident of TN. ever since some time about the yr. 1839, and says note was for $25.00 on the 12th day of June 1849 he Paid him $40.00 but Kane mis- recited on the receipt what the money was for so he could cover his extravagant charges.
15th Jan 1850, Patrick Neal and H.P. signed a bond unto Henry S. Kane for $100.00
MY NOTE: This Patrick Neal was a nephew of Grimes Neal and the son of Hamilton Neal who died while a resident of Greene Co. TN. He is the Patrick that married Comfort Kilgore in Scott County. After Hamilton ” died ” (actually he killed himself) Patrick lived with Grimes in Scott co. as he was a child when his father died in 1816.
