Jeremiah Williams and his wife and others, complainants
Mary Rhodes, Nancy Rhodes, Catherine Rhodes and William Rhodes, defendants
The bill in this case states that Ann Steuart, late of said county, died seised of Lots Nos. 14 and 15, in square 224, in Washington city and in said District, leaving as her heirs at law Susan K. Williams, Hebe Gedney, Arabella McGee, Adam D. Steuart, William M. Steuart and Margaret M. Ashton, her children, and Duncan S. Carter, Heby Ashby, Judith Carter, and Hellen M. Boggs, children of Ann Carter deceased, a child of
said Ann Steuart, and Mary, Nancy and Catharine, and William Rhodes, the above-named defendants' children of Marion Rhodes, deceased, a child of said Ann Carter; that since the death of said Ann Steuart, the said Adam D. Steuart conveyed his portion of the said lots of land to Susan K. Williams and William M. Steuart and their heirs in equal parts, that afterwards said William M. Steuart conveyed his entire interest in said lots to the said Susan K. Williams and Hebe Gedney, and is dead without issue; that said Hebe Gedney has since died intestate and without issue, leaving Thomas R. Gedney, her husband, who is entitled to a life estate in her portion of said lots; and that the said Margaret M. Ashton is dead intestate, never having had issue.
The complainants claim to be entitled, with the said named defendants, to the inheritance and ownership of the said lots of land in unequal and undivided portions.
The object of the bill of complaint is to obtain a decree for the sale of the said lots of land in order to have partition made of the proceeds of such sale among the parties concerned there in proportion to their several interests in the premises.
It is by the Court, on the motion of the complainants, by their soliciter, this 21st day of October, in the year 1853, ordered that the said defendants appear in this Court on or before the fourth Monday in March next to answer the said bill of complaint and if they fail so to appear and answer, that the matters and things in the said bill contained shall be taken for confessed and such decree made in the premises as to the Court shall appear right and equitable - provided the complainants cause the substance and object of the said bill and this order to be published in the National Intelligencer three times a week for six weeks - the first insertion thereof to appear in the said paper at least four months before the said fourth Monday in March next.
By order of the Court. True Copy. Test: JNO. A. SMITH, clerk«/i»
