Savignac v. Garrison - 59 U.S. 136 (1855)
U.S. Supreme Court
Savignac v. Garrison, 59 U.S. 18 How. 136 136 (1855)
Savignac v. Garrison
59 U.S. (18 How.) 136*
The Act of congress passed on the 13th of June, 1812, confirmed the titles to out-lots in the Town of St. Louis, in Missouri, upon certain conditions, and the Act of 26th of May, 1824, required the performance of these conditions, and the boundaries of the lot to be proved before the recorder of land titles.
Whether the lot and conditions came within the purview of the act of 1812 were questions of fact for the jury. The neglect to procure the survey and location under the act of 1824 did not forfeit the title acquired under the act of 1812.
The case of Guitard v. Stoddard, 16 How. 494, controls this case.
The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
