Notes
-  Summary: Gillett bought 320 acres of land from William Henrietta and his wife Elizabeth Henrietta for $400. After the transfer of land, Gillett noticed a mistake in the deed from Henrietta. The deed designated the township in the land description as "7" when it should have been "17." Gillett retained Herndon and sued the Henriettas to correct the deed. Henrietta failed to appear, and the court ruled for Gillett and ordered Henrietta to deliver a new corrected deed to Gillett.
