Title Legal petition
Dates of Creation 1866
Scope & Content Legal petition made to Henry E. Blair, Judge of the Circuit Court of Giles County, Virginia by the heirs of Hugh & Lynea P. Woodram in an effort to get a clear deed to a house and property located in Pearisburg, Virginia. This case started on January 15, 1866. The guardians of the heirs of John H. Bane asked the court to approve the sale of the house to Lynea P. Woodram, (mother of all the petitioners) and R. F. Watts, the administrator of Hugh Woodram's estate for $1600.
