United States Supreme Court

63 U.S. 293

United States  v.  Heirs of De Haro

THIS was an appeal from the District Court of the United States for the northern district of California.

The facts of the case and state of the title are fully set forth in the opinion of the court.

It was argued by Mr. Stanton for the United States, and by Mr. Phillips for the appellees.

The principal question in the case was respecting the identity of the houses or the land granted with those claimed in the petition. Mr. Phillips contended that there could be no stronger proof of this, than that possession had been constinuous during the whole time since the date of the grant.

Mr. Justice McLEAN delivered the opinion of the court.


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).
