Gooding v. Oliver, 58 U.S. 17 How. 274 274 (1854)

Gooding v. Oliver

58 U.S. (17 How.) 274


The decision in the preceding case, of Williams, Administrator of Williams v. Oliver's Executors, again affirmed.

In this case's leading features, it was identical with the preceding case of Williams, Administrator of Williams, against the same defendants.

Oliver had purchased Gooding's share in the Mexican Company, from Winchester, the trustee in insolvency, which was passed upon by the Baltimore County Court and the Maryland Court of Appeals under the same circumstances and at the same time with the preceding case.

Gooding died intestate, on the 15th of February, 1839, and John Glenn administered upon his estate on the 15th of February, 1852. John Gooding, Junior, the appellant, afterwards became the administrator de bonis non.

The circuit court dismissed the bill filed by the appellant, and it was argued in this Court together with the preceding case.
