legal case and case notes
-  Summary: Shelton and Tharp gave Fullenwider a promissory note for $1,500, and Shelton secured the note with a mortgage on eighty acres of land in Sangamon County, Illinois. Fullenwider assigned the note and mortgage to Kingsbury. After Shelton and Tharp failed to pay, Kingsbury retained Lincoln and Herndon and sued Shelton to foreclose the mortgage. Shelton failed to appear, and the court ruled for Kingsbury and awarded $1,981.25 in damages. Shelton failed to pay the judgment, and the court sold the eighty acres to Kingsbury for $2,083.80. Kingsbury also recovered a judgment on the promissory note in a separate assumpsit case (Kingsbury v. Shelton & Tharp).
