"Reports of Cases Determined in The Supreme Court of the State of California" at the July and October terms 1875; by Charles A. Tuttle, Reporter, Vol.50; pgs.511 to 520 (El Dorado Co. CA Law Library 12/2003; MAD's extract)
JAMES F. HIBBERD and WM. A. PIPER v. JOHN SMITH, CHAS. SHORE, H.C. TAPPAN, RUSSEL M. ROGERS and ELISHA H. ROGERS; No. 2104, Supreme Court of California; 50 Cal. 511; October 1875.
Appeal from the District Court, Fourth Judicial District, City and County of San Francisco.
Ejectment to recover a tract of land containing about one hundred acres, being portion of the rancho San Antonio, in the county of Alameda. The action was commenced June 29, 1861, and at this time the grant had been confirmed, but the final survey had not been approved. Both parties claimed under W.W. Chipman. Chipman and Aughinbaugh owned the land, and on the 11th day of November, 1854, Aughinbaugh sold to Chipman. On the 1st day of March, 1855, the plaintiff Hibberd recovered a judgment against Chipman and Aughinbaugh for eight thousand six hundred dollars ... On the 22d day of October, 1856, an execution issued on the judgment, and the sheriff sold the demanded premises on the 17th day of November, 1856, and the plaintiff Hibberd became the purchaser, and received a sheriff's deed, July 7, 1858. Hibberd conveyed an undivided interest in the premises to the plaintiff Piper. This was the plaintiff's title.
The defendants claimed title under W.W. Chipman through Edward S. Chipman. On the 6th day of January, 1855, W.W. Chipman executed a deed of the demanded premises to Edward S. Chipman, who was not in California, but resided in the State of Ohio. This deed was recorded at the request of the grantor, March 15, 1855, but was not delivered to the grantee until June 30, 1855, at which time he arrived in this State. W.W. was indebted to Edward S. when the deed was made, but the latter did not know of the execution of the same until it was delivered to him. The defendants were severally in possession of the premises, deraigning title under said Edward S. The defendants offered in evidence the judgment-roll in the case of H.P. Hepburn v. W.W. Chipman and others. The judgment was rendered in the District Court of the Third Judicial District, for the County of Alameda, on the 26th day of August, 1854, upon a suit brought to foreclose a mortgage for over eleven thousand dollars given on other property than the demanded premises. The judgment was in the usual form, directing the sale of the mortgaged property, and then provided "that, in case of insufficiency of said proceeds to pay said notes and interest and all costs and expenses in this action, and attending said sale, then execution issue against said Chipman, Morrell and Webster, for the balance unpaid." Defendants then introduced in evidence an order of sale issued on the judgment, and the sheriff 's return, which showed that he sold the mortgaged property on the 23d day of October, 1854, for seven thousand eight hundred dollars, and reported a deficiency of $8040.84, which return and report were filed November 27, 1854. The defendants then offered in evidence an execution for the deficiency reported by the sheriff, issued July 1, 1856, and the sheriff's return thereon, which showed that he received the execution on the day it issued, and on the same day levied on the demanded premises, and sold the same on the 30th day of July, 1856, to W.L. Duncan, for the sum of seven thousand dollars. The writ and return were filed September 25, 1856. In the same connection the defendants offered in evidence the sheriff's certificate of sale, and a deed from the sheriff to said Duncan, dated August 14, 1857, and recorded October 8, 1858, and a deed from Duncan to Edward S. Chipman, reciting that said Chipman had purchased and was the owner of the judgment under which Duncan had purchased, and that the same had been assigned to Duncan in trust for Chipman, and declaring that Duncan held the property in trust for Chipman. This last deed was dated July 7, 1856, and recorded November 8, 1856. The above papers were introduced to show that whatever right Duncan acquired by the sheriff's sale was vested in Edward S. Chipman. ... Judgment and order reversed and cause remanded for new trial.
Pension Index Card File, alphabetical; of the Veterans Administrative Contact and Administration Services, Admin. Operations Services, 1861-1934; Duff to A-J Duncan (negative FHL film 540,888, some cards very faint); Joseph Duncan to Dunn (positive FHL film 540,889, some cards very dark)
Cataloged under Civil War, 1861-1865, pensions, indexes; does not say if Confederate or Federal, but probably Federal. Negative film, some cards much too faint or dark to read, some cards blurred or faded, particularly the service unit and the dates of application. Most of the very faint or dark cards were in a slightly different format, with space for years enlisted and discharged which were sometimes filled in. Many of these were for service in later years, although one or two were for service ca 1866.
Name of soldier, alias, name of dependent widow or minor, service (military unit or units), date of filing, class (invalid or widow or minor or other), Application #, Certificate #, state from which filed (sometimes blank), attorney (sometimes blank, MAD: did not usually copy), remarks. Sometimes the "Invalid" or "Widow" class had an "s" added to it before the application #; occasionally the area for the service information included a circled "S". The minor's name was frequently that of the guardian rather than the minor.
The military unit was frequently the Company Letter, the Regiment Number, sometimes US Vet Vol Inf. (US Veteran Volunteer Infantry), L.A. (Light Artillery), H.A. (Heavy Artillery), US C Inf (US Colored? Infantry), Cav. (Cavalry), Mil. Guards, V.R.C. (?Volunteer Reserve Corps?), etc. Sometimes there were several service units given.
Cards appear to be arranged by the last name, first name, middle initial if any, and state (including "US") of service.
