1869 Kentucky Court Appeals case land dispute
1869 Kentucky Court Appeals case land dispute
Involves Cyrenius Waite, Lindsey Colyer, Samuel Black. Note the economic devastation on land values during Civil War in Pulaski County. Land purchased for $1 per acre in 1857, sold at 20 cents an acre at auction in 1869. This appears to be property inherited from John Colyer, the father of Lindsey Colyer and Samuel Black's wife, Harriett (based on 1/17th undivided interests) At some point Cyrenius Waite has come to lay claim to the sold 1/17th interests. See 1865 deed under John Colyer, where heirs all sell their 1/17th interest in farm at Pitman Creek to Andrew Warren. Colyer family friend, Cyrenius Waite, appears to have again intervened in Colyer land as he did for Bluford Colyer...see deeds under Bluford Colyer.
