The case is entitled to Green McCorkle vs. Simon Yarrell et al (date of case to the Supreme Court is unknown). It is a Mississippi Supreme Court Case that was regarding an unlawful detainer. The case also reads: Error to the Circuit Court of Lauderdale County, J.S. Hamm, Judge and S.B. Watts was the attorney for the plaintiff in error and W. G. Grace was the attorney for the defendants in error. This case also refers to another case entitled Ragan vs. Harrell, 52 Miss 818. The case was brought under Section 1582 of the Code of 1871. J.Chalmers issued the opinion. 55-Miss 57 is listed at the bottom of the opinion.
I would also like to know the lower court case that this appeal refers to. It might have been in the Circuit or Chancery Court of Lauderdale County.
If you e-mail me directly I can send you a copy of what I have.
