United States Supreme Court

33 U.S. 494

United States  v.  Gibson


This was a grant made by governor Grant, of East Florida, for ten thousand acres of land whilst that province was under the dominion of Great Britain, and another grant made by governor Tomyn, to Francis P. Fatio, for seven hundred and sixty acres. The first tract was conveyed by regular deeds to the ancestor of the petitioners.

The same questions are involved as in the case of the heirs of Francis P. Fatio. It is therefore considered by the court, that the decree of the superior court of East Florida be affirmed.

This cause came on to be heard on the transcript of the record from the superior court for the eastern district of Florida, and was argued by counsel; on consideration whereof, it is ordered, adjudged and decreed by this court, that the decree of the said superior court in this cause be, and the same is hereby affirmed in all respects.
