United States Supreme Court

53 U.S. 371

Jabez  v.  State Bank of Indiana

THIS case was brought up by writ of error, from the Circuit Court of the District of Indiana.

It was an ejectment brought by the plaintiffs in error, citizens of Vermont, against the State Bank of Indiana, under the following circumstances.

By a law passed on the 14th of January, 1824, the Legislature of Indiana provided that whenever any new county should be laid off, five commissioners should be appointed to locate the seat of justice therein, to receive donations in land, and take title-bonds for the conveyance of it to such persons as the county commissioners should direct.


This work is in the public domain in the United States because it is a work of the United States federal government (see 17 U.S.C. 105).
