?? 1873 In the matter of a dispute between George T. REEVES & Jacob HOPPERAS [HOPPERS]. The Superior Court referred the case to J.W. TODD & Quincy F. NEAL in fall term 1873, who "now report our undertaking in the case & our conclusions of law thereon." David MAXWELL obtained a grant for 3,000 acres in 1837 [DB 11:346] covering the land in dispute, & also shows possession of a part of the 50 acre tract, but of the land in dispute, HOPPERAS obtained a grant in 1840 [DB 1:514] & thirty years ago also cleaned about 20 acres that has been in actual adverse possession ever since. Our conclusion is that HOPPERS have part of the interference lappage to the boundary of the 300 acre tract & REEVES having no actual possession of any part of the interference, HOPPERS' title has refined into good title he having had actual possession of part of the lappage for more than 7 years.
