Ewing v. Standefer
Error to Circuit Court of Madison
Action of detinue brought by defendants in error against plaintiff to recover 5 several negro slaves; They claimed as children of «b»Lydia Standefer, grandchildren of John Echols«/b», deceased, under will of the latter which bequeathed said property as follows: "I lend to my daughter, Lydia Standefer during her natural life, 5 Negroes viz: Harrena, etc. These 5 Negroes with all their increase, I will to the lawful begotten heirs of Lydia Standefer to be equally divided among them at her death." Plaintiff in error claims as purchaser, deriving title from Skelton Standefer, husband of said Lydia, through intervening purchasers. Lydia has since departed this life and defendants insist that their right to slaves became perfect upon her decease.
