      //////////////////////////////////////////////////////

      BUFORD JACKSON ET AL
      VS.
      SYDNEY JACKSON ET AL

      TO THE HON. JNO. T. CUNNINGHAM, JUDGE OF THE COUNTY COURT OF MONTGOMERY COUNTY, TENNESSEE.

      In obedience to an order of reference made in this case on October 14, 1931, I was instructed to take proof and report:

      1. Who are the owners of the land sought to be sold and the respective right, title and interest of the parties therein and what share or part belongs to each.

      2. Whether the premises are so situated that it would be manifestly to the advantage of the parties and especially the infants, that the same should be sold for a division instead of by petition.

      3. Whether there are any incumbrances on the premises.

      In obedience to said order I respectfully report that I ttook depositions of Buford Jackson and J. K. Kentner and from their testimony I find as follows:

      1. The property is owned as follows: Mrs. Florence Jackson left the following living Heirs and their interest:

      Buford Jackson 1/4
      Mrs. Winnie Reeves 1/4
      Mrs. Venie Evans 1/4
      Hadley Jackson, a son of Mrs. Florence Jackson, died leaving the following children:
      Interest as follows
      Ernest Jackson 1/16
      Earl Jackson 1/16
      Omie Jackson 1/16
      Sydney Jackson 1/16

      They are the children of Mrs. Florence Jackson, who died on the 26th day of June, 1931, seized and possessed in simple fee of the tract of land in the 18th Civil District of Montgomery County, Tennessee.

      2. The property is so situated that it would be a disadvantage to the heirs to divide the property, and it is to the interest of all parties that the property be sold for partition.

      3. From the proof I find that the premises are unencumbered.

      Respectfully submitted,

      A. Yes.
      Q. When did she die?
      A. She died last June.
      Q. Do you know whether she owed any debts at the time of her death?
      A. No, she didn't owe no one but the doctor's bill, was all she owed, just doctor's bill.
      Q. Have the funeral expenses been paid?
      A. No. She owed the funeral and doctor's bills. I think it is $132.00, to the best I can remember, is what is against it.
      Q. Did she leave a will?
      A. No.
      Q. Do you know how she got title to this property?
      A. Well, I just can't answer that. I don't know. It was left by her husband, through, I guess.
      Q. Who are her heirs?
      A. Well, her children are her heirs, aren't they?
      Q. Yes.
      A. Buford Jackson and Venie Evans and Winnie Reeves and Hadley Jackson, my husband.
      Q. She had four children?
      A. Yes.
      Q. And those you named are her four children?
      A. Yes.

      A. Yes.
      Q. When did he die?
      A. He died about 5 years ago, something like that.
      Q. How many children have you, Mrs. Jackson?
      A. Four.
      Q. They are all Hadley Jackson's children?
      A. Yes.
      Q. You have never been married but the one time?
      A. No.
      Q. And what are the names of your children, and their ages?
      A. Sidney Jackson, age 14, Ernest Jackson is the next one and he will be 11 his birthday. Q. Just give his age what he is now?
      Q. Yes.
      A. He is 10. Earl Jackson, he is 8, and Omie here is just 6. (this would imply that Omie is in his mother's lap during the deposition)
      Q. These four children live with you?
      A. Yes.
      Q., Where are you living now?
      A. I am working at Mr. Sam Broome's.
      Q. In what district?
      A. In the 19th district of this county?
      Q. Do you believe this is about as good a time as another to sell this property that Mrs. Florence Jackson owned?
      A. Yes. I think it is just as good a time just to let it go.
      Q. Would it be practical to divide that property up among the heirs?
      A. I don't think it would, because of the water, it is all at one end, and the buildings are all at one end, and I don't think they could divide it satisfactorily. There ain't enough to divide among four, it is not big enough for that, and none ain't able to pay the debts.
      Q. None of the children would be able to pay the debts, even if it could be divided?
      A. No, that's the trouble, And
      Q. And anyway, because of the way the property is situated in regard to the water and buildings, it wouldn't be practical to divide it?
      A. No, I don't think it would.
      Q. So you think the best thing to do is to go ahead and sell and pay the debts and what is left beyond that, to divide it out?
      A. Yes.
      Q. You understand that your children together will be entitled to one-fourth of what is left after payment of the debts and expenses?
      A. Yes.
      Q. And you know from conditions that won't be very much?
      A. Yes, I know it can't be.
      AND FUTHER DEPONENT SAYETH NOT.
      Cross examination waived.
