Notes
-  Summary: Knight retained Lincoln and sued the heirs of Washington Carter to settle a partnership. Carter and Knight had been partners in selling land and livestock and in farming. The court appointed three commissioners to partition the estate's 615 acres. The commissioners assigned dower to Carter's widow, Susan Boardman; gave Knight one-half of the land; and partitioned the remaining land in equal shares for Carter's three minor heirs.
