Nieces sue an uncle who palmed off an alleged shaky note on them.
Misses Maude and Jessie Loveland have commenced suit in the circuit court against their uncle William O. Loveland. Their grandmother, Mrs Alzina Fuller, late of Milan, died May 29, 1896, and left them a lot in Milan village and made them residiary legatees of her estate. She left her son Oscar W. Loveland $300 and appointed him executor. The bill they filed sets up that this son's name was William O. Loveland, the defendant to the suit. The will was probated and the estate settled, being appraised of the value of $2,975.45. They charge that their uncle had a note of $100 signed by W. L. McAlister, his own personal property which he turned over to the estate, taking cash therefor, and had apraised and when he came to settle up the estate he turned this note over to them representing it to be all right and for it they gave their receipt for $107.81. The note, it is claimed is worthless, McAlister not having a cent and no property to collect from. Consequently they sue Wm. O. Loveland for the $107.18 and interest.
