Raymond's Lessee v. Longworth, 55 U.S. 14 How. 76 76 (1852)

Raymond's Lessee v. Longworth

55 U.S. (14 How.) 76


In the State of Ohio, it is not a sufficient description of taxable lands to say, "Cooper, James, 5 acres, section 24, T. 4, F.R. I." A deed made in consequence of a sale for taxes under such a description is void. The courts of Ohio have so decided, and this Court adopts their decision.

This case was an ejectment brought by Raymond for the following property, viz.:

"All that certain tract of land in the western part of Cincinnati commencing thirty feet north of Nicholas Longworth's individual property, on the west side of Mill Creek Road, thence north on the line of said road five hundred feet, and extending back the same width at right angles with said road four hundred feet."

The facts are set forth in the opinion of the Court.
