Farrely v. Woodfolk

60 U.S. (19 How.) 288


The rule with respect to final and interlocutory decrees, which is applied to the preceding case of Beebe v. Russell again affirmed and applied.

The bill was filed by Woodfolk, a citizen of Tennessee, against the heirs and representatives of Frederic Notribe and others for the purpose of obtaining a title to certain lands. The court decreed that the defendants should procure the legal extinguishment of the lien and encumbrance which existed upon the lands, and convey them to the complainant. The decree also contained a reference to a master, with the instructions which are stated in the opinion of the Court. The defendants appealed to this Court.
