COOK & LEACH,
June 23. 1902.
Joshua E. Peel & Son,
Gentlemen:- Your two letters of 11th inst.
in relation to the property of Rose Hegarty and the heirs
of Agnes Duffy received and also power of attorney from
Rose Hegarty to our Mr. Cook.
We think that you have furnished us with all the
facts in the case that are necessary and in order to
perfect the title to the property so it can be sold, we
shall have to commence a suit in partition, making Rose
Hegarty, plaintiff, and Katherine Branigan defendant and
vice versa and bringing in the others as defendants, Rose,
Mary and Michael; also other unknown heirs. Under our
statute, we have a right to bring all parties in Court by
publishing the same in our paper. We name Rose, Mary and
Michael as defendants and then bring in unknown heirs,
grantees or legatees or any party that may possibly have
any interest in the property; it also brings any party
that may be interested in the property before the courts,
so that the Court has full jurisdiction and an adjudication
as to the ownership of the property is final and binding
on everybody, and the purchaser from the referee will
obtain a good title.
Enclosed find petition for Katherine to sign and
swear to before the Deputy Consul and return to us. and
we will get a sale of the property as soon as possible.
