United States v. Heirs of de Haro
63 U.S. (22 How.) 293
Where property in California has been in the undisturbed possession of the claimant and his heirs for sixteen years without any other person's claiming or
exercising a possession or right of possession, and it appears that the grant was originally made by Governor Alvarado during his term of office, the claim will be confirmed.
This was an appeal from the district court of the United States for the Northern District of California.
The facts of the case and state of the title are fully set forth in the opinion of the court.
