William HALLUM versus William HART Et Al. The bill of complaint of William Hallum of Davidson County against William Hart, and Jefferson Rowland of Smith County; and George Rowland of Arkansas. On 26 Dec 1828, George Rowland was indebted to the said William Hallum in the amount of $385 for which he executed his note. The said George has been for some years and is now a non resident of this State, and has been generally unable to pay the amount. But by the death of his father, he became entitled to a distributive part of his estate. The negroes of David Rowland deceased is a part of which the said George is entitled as a distributee and legatee of said David. The slaves were sold under a decree of court. Hallum has made some exertion to get his debt satisfied. He is apprehensive that the money from the sale may be taken out of the State. The said David left a will by which he directed that his property be equally divided into six parts and the said George is entitled to one part. Hallum is asking the court to injoin Hart and Jefferson Rolwand from paying over to said George Rowland any part of said fund until further order from the court. Feb. 1841. (p.222-224)
