No. 1610—Equity.

John R. King and others,
Elizabeth King and others.

IN the Circuit Court for Washington County, sitting as a Court of Equity.—The object of the petition of Franklin L., and Elizabeth King, Administrators of Christian King, deceased, filed in the above cause, is to procure the payment of two single bills due from Samuel R. King, out of the share of the proceeds of his father's (the said Christian, deceased,) estate. The petition states that said Samuel R. became indebted to said Christian by his two single bills; one dated September 25th, 1833, for the sum of $50; and the other dated February 5th, 1842, for the sum of $12, That afterwards said Christian died, whereupon said Samuel R. being a son of said Christian became entitled to a portion of his real estate, which has been sold under a decree in this cause; That said Samuel R. being so entitled and indebted, also died, leaving a widow named Mary King, and Henrietta, wife of Solomon H. Reese, Davenport S. King, William H. King, Savilla J. King, Martha A King and Daniel R. King, his heirs at law, all of whom are non-residents of the State of Maryland.— That said Samuel R. left no personal property, nor any other property, except his interest in said real estate. The petition charges that no part of said indebtedness has been paid out of the proceeds of said Samuel's share of said real estate: And to that end prays for a decree applying so much of said Samuel's proportion of said proceeds as may be necessary to the payment of said indebtedness. And for an order of publication against said non-resident defendants.

It is thereupon this 8th day of August, 1862, by the Clerk of said Court, adjudged and ordered that the petitioners by causing a copy of this order to be inserted in some newspaper published in Washington County, Maryland, once in each of four successive weeks before the 13th day of September next, give notice to the said Mary King, Solomon H. Reese and Wife, Davenport S. King, William H. King, Saville J. King, Martha A. King and Daniel R. King, nonresidents as aforesaid, of the object and substance of this petition, and warn them to appear in this Court in person or by solicitor, on or before the last day of December next, to answer the premises and shew cause if any they have, why a decree ought not to pass as prayed.
True Copy—Test:
August 13, 1862.
