COMMENCE INTERESTING SLIT.
Estati of the Lute Joel W. Anderson
of Waterloo Involved.
Mr. /laude A. Floyd, formerly of
this county but now a citizen of Bir
mingham, has recently filed a suit
with the clerk of court through his
! attorney. Mr. T. C. Turner. Jr., against
I Mr. I), c. smith of Waterloo for an
accounting and final settlement of the
estate of the late Joel W. Anderson.
Mr. Anderson died in December of 1875
leaving a considerable estate of which
he disposed of under his will, appoint
ing .Mr. D. C. Smith as executor. The
complaint alleges In part as follows:
"7. That since the qualification of
the defendant. David Casper Smith as
i executor as aforesaid, he has retained
control and management of the said
estate, and has rented mit the real
estate, collected large sums of money
through the estate, and paid off cer
tain debts alleged to he due by it. as
I to Hie exact nature and amount of
said items the plaintiff has not deli
"S. That the said defendant. David
Casper Smith, has never made a full
and final settlement of said estate,
or received his discharge as execu
tor thereof; that he has on hand, or
should have a large balance distribut
| able among said legatees.
? i. That on or about Oct. 10, 18S7,
a proceeding was instituted in the Pro
hate court of Laurens county by David
Casper Smith as executor of the will
of Joel W. Anderson, plaintiff against
Jane Maria Smith and others, defend
ants, for the sale of the real estate of
Joel W. Anderson in aid of personalty
to pay alleged debts, ami an order was
made by Court of Probate of I.aurens
county for the sale of the said real
! estate, and that under the said order
of sab" all of the real estate of said
Joel \V. Anderson consisting of over
I.eon acres of land was sold by Judge
of Probate of Laurens county in No
vember. ISS7, for a large sum of mon
ey, the exact amount the plaintiff la,
not Informed; that the defendant Da
vid Casper Smith, executor has made
no accounting, and has failed to
charge himself with the sums received
from the proceedings of said sale, and
1 that he is largely indebted to the
plaint ill and other legatees on account
thereof, the said real estate having
been devised to the said legatees to
be divided upon the same terms as the
"10. That defendant has not faith
fully returned the income which he
i has received on accounts of the said
estate, and has failed to charge him
self with sums of money received on
I account of land belonging to the said
! estate im the State of Florida; and has
I fulled tu make returns of collections
made by him of notes and other cIiosch
In action as to the exact amount of
which the plaintiff is not informed."
Mr. Smith is represented by Messrs.
Ferguson & Peatherstone and Messrs.
' Richey & Richey. The case will not
likely be called for trial before the
November term of court.
