Notes
-  Summary: Ross gave Wood and others a promissory note for $827.56, and secured the note with a mortgage on four hundred acres of land in Sangamon County, Illinois. After Ross failed to pay the note, Wood and others retained Stuart and Lincoln and sued Ross to foreclose the mortgage. Ross failed to appear, and the court ruled for Wood and others and awarded $941.35 in damages. Ross failed to pay the judgment, and the court appointed a commissioner to sell the land.
