Stated Mr. TODD had asked him to deed the store property to them and take the rest for the mortgage. Mrs. TODD told him it had been their home for many years and they wanted to remain there. In a later converstion with Mrs. TODD, she told him times were hard, they had lost their only son and very recently also lost a daughter (one of their daughters was Grace who had been ill). Mr. Charles SNOOK had offered $900 for the store property for Mrs. TODD because they were old friends and neighbors. ROGERS discovered the insurance and taxes had not been paid and the grain elevator, large bin and other items had been removed after the sale; he evidently declined the offer. The court overruled the objections. William P. MAULSBY Jr., Esquire, was appointed trustee to convey the deeds. John G. ROGERS then had to petition the court to have the TODDs removed from the property as they had refused to leave the premises. Closed 10 Feb 1887. ===
