Summons for Solomon G. Schools et als - 1857

Submitted by Jeanette Nelson


This summons somehow survived the fire that destroyed the King and Queen County Court House in 1865. It was found in the Circuit Clerk's Office in the old chancery cases files in box 12 and apparently is a part of a chancery case brought by John W. Schools et als.
