by Christine Lynn and her husband is
valid, and that consequently no procedure
to teat the ownership can be brought.
This is what wan known aa tho Millspaugh
suit, and created a wide interest because
it involved the title to the site of
the great manufacturing town of Pullnun.
Tho land was originally located by
Henry Millspaugb, a private in the 13th
United States Infantry and a soldier of
the war of 1812. Daviu Millspaugb and
Christine Lvnu were the brother and
aiBter and nolo heirs of Henry Millspaugb.
Christine and William Lynn, her husband,
deeded tho onohalf interest to Milton
and Thomas McKwen, May '20,185/},
but it appeared xnoro than five years after
the date of the deed that tho name of the
husband did not appear in the body of
the deed, although ho signed it and joined
in the execution before a justice of the
peace. Judge Gresham held thatOhristiuo
Lynn and William Lynn, her hmband,
had executed the deed, and that
tho instrument to bo construed was what
they had intended to do and what they
supposed they had done, namely, a conveyance
of all their rights and titloand interest
in and to the property named.
Judgment*** therefore given to defendants.
