E. H. Parrish, Executor and trustee of R. L. Clarkson, Pltif.,
against James M. Clarkson and others, Defendants.- In Equity.
By virtue of a decree rendered at a late term of the Kenton
Circuit Court in the above cause, I will on the 19th day of
February next, offer for sale, on the premises, a valuable tract
of containing one thousand acres in tracts of 50 acres, Said
land is situated in Kenton county, Ky., on Licking river, nineteen
miles from Covington, by the Covington and Lexington railroad,
which runs through the land. The sale will be made on a credit
of one, two, and three years, the purchaser to give bond and
security for the purchase money, bearing interest at six per
cent, per annum until paid. This land is all unimproved and
covered with the finest description of wood and timber trees,
consisting of oak, poplar, black walnut, sugar tree, blue ash,
interspersed with a large proportion of wild cherry tree, and
is in the river bottom the finest beach imaginable, and presents
the finest prospect yet offered for men of industry to get themselves
homes, or men of capital to increase their fortunes, as the
wood and timber taken to market will more than pay for the land,
and when taken off will render the land doubly valuable.I will
be prepared on the day of sale with a complete survey and maps
of the land and the divisions, so as to give accurate information
touching the locality of the several parcels, and also give
satisfactory assurances in respect to the title. In the meantime,
Mr. Phillip Talifario, on the adjoining tract above the land,
will take pleasure in showing land to anyone who may wish to
inspect it. N. B. Stephens, Com’r.
