Heirs and Attorneys; Origi
nal Litigants Dead
The supreme court affirmed yester-]
iay the decree given by Judge Wells
in the superior court of Contra Costa
county for the partition of the Marsh
ranch «t Brentwood. ' The •\u25a0 decision, 1
brings to a close legal battles' that
have been -waged for nearly 40 years.'
The ranch, which consists, of 13,000
acres, was originally* patented' to John
Marsh. His heirs sold it to. James P.
Sanford In IS7I. partly" for 'cash ' and
partly on credit. Panford was .caught
in the panic of 1?73 and as a result was
not able to meet the mortgages" and th^e
property •was foreclosed. upon , in : 1875..
Before the time f or. redemption expired/
however. Sanford \ raised J J160.000. from
the Savings and Loanjsocietyjand. some;
other money needed for the redemption.'
Other oredftofs then .attacked /his
terest in the property: and he-'was.eii
"atulfed in" litigation for .the> next -six;
years. '.• \u25a0» •'" \u25a0• . : \ \
In ISSI he became- Involved ' In r «a'
fresh controversy 'with "the" Savings and-
Loan society and Sanford and'his. sister
Harriett commenced -a 'suit "in ' the
•United States court to redeem- the prop
erty from the bank. This suit was
pending for IS years, at- the 'end of
""u-hich time the bank was defeated and
ordered to restore the ranch upon the
payment of $206,0*0. ' \ '
SANFORd'aXD SISTERS DIE,',
During this " litigation Sanford -and
his sister Harriett- had died. .They
left their Interest In the ranch to
a sister, Josephine,, who also, died
three years before the case was de
cided.- In her lifetime she had made
• ontracts -•with her attorneys to carry
on the litigation by which the attor
neys were to receive 15 per cent of the
rancli. One-quarter was left to' Prof.
tj- ,>!•:-» Davidson, one-quarter to An
<l;v - Moseley. one-eighth to Dr. C.
X. •'\u25a0\u25a0\u25a0\u25a0 iirood and one-eighth to Thomas
J f L". ..in. The remaining quarter she
gavt .! trust for a grandnephew and
ti ranu niece in Boston.
Charles Sanford. whom she express
ly disinherited, filed a contest which
he later dismissed. He then brought
suit in Judge Wells' court for a par
tition and lost that case, the decision
in which was affirmed yesterday. Some
yesrs ago the supreme court decided
that the trust in the -will of Josephine
Sanford of one-quarter of So per cent
of the ranch to her grandnephew and
prandniece wa* void under the Fair
will case ruling, and that quarter went
to her four heirs at law, among them
Charles E. Sanford. The effect of yes
terday's decision will be to procure an
fearly partition of the property, which
\u25a0will be divided as follows:
