      Q. Was Mrs. Florence Jackson the owner of the property described in the original bill in the suit of Buford Jackson, et al. vs. Sidney Jackson, et al.?
      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.
      Q. Buford Jackson is still living?
      A. Yes.
      Q. And Winnie Reeves is her daughter and she is still living?
      A. Yes.
      Q. And Venie Evans is her daughter and she is still living?
      A. Yes.
      Q. And her fourth child was Hadley Jackson, who was your husband?
      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.
