Your Orators are informed and believe that said John Wallace , under whom your Orators claim purchased said Ten acres of land , as of and paid an honest consideration therefore to wit 20 shillings per acre which was then and there by said John Wallace fully paid and satisfied. That said John Wallace had for some time possession, of said Ten acres, but that in about 3 or 5 years from that time said John Wallace departed this life. But your Orators represent that at the time said John Wallace made said purchase from said William Chapline, deceased, he took from him a Bond for a little to said 10 acres of land, yet your Orators represents that after the death of said John Wallace a certain Simon M. Hubbard whom your Orators makes a Defendant to this Bill by some fraudulent means, but your Orators believe without any good or valid consideration whatever, procured from said Margaret Wallace, widow and relict of said John Wallace, deceased, said Bond on said William Chapline, deceased, your Orators believe that on the death of said John Wallace said Bond came casually into the hands of said Widow and that said Simon M. Hubbard by his cunning and hand procured possession from her U----. Your Orators are informed and believe that Simon M. Hubbard left this County in a precipitate manner and has moved to Shawney Town in the Illinois Territory that he left together with other papers in his departure. This bond, in the possession of a certain George Bratton, whom your Orators make a Defendant to this bill and whom your Orators believe still claims possession of said Bond for the little of said 10 acres of land, your Orators state that they believe that said Bond states and sets out the meter and bounds of said 10 acres more fully and amply than they are now able to do that when produces they pray may be instructed for that purpose.

For as much as these things are contrary to equity and good conscience and lend manifest by to the injury and prejudice of your orators and for as much as your Orators can only have redress in your honorable court where matter of fraud are cognizable. Your Orators pray that said S. M. Hubbard may be compelled in from his ------- oath true and perfect answers to make to all and singular the allegations contained in this bill in fully as of the same were again set out to him by way of fraudulent intentions , and that he may answer to say what way he came in possession of said Bond? Who he purchased it of? What consideration he paid for it? And if he has it? If the has it - to produce it--That said Bratton may be compelled to shew how he came into possession of said Bond? If he has it to produce it in court and that he be informed from giving it out of his possession until it is produced in court. Your Orator also makes the --- of said William Chapline, deceased, Nancy Chapline, Helen M. Chapline and Amanda Chapline, infant heirs of said William Chapline, deceased defendants to this bill and require them by their proper guardians to answer this bill. Your Orators pray that upon the hearing of this cause said Hubbard or Bratton may be compelled to deliver up on said Bond and that the said Hubbard may be compelled to relinquish his fraudulent claim thereto. The said Heirs of said William Chapline , deceased, may be compelled to make to your Orators a good and sufficient title to said 10 acres of land and your Orators in duty bound will -------.

Wallace Heirs vs. Hubbard

Filed 14th day of April 1818

Margaret Wallace, widow and relict of John Wallace deceased.


ROBERT WALLACE (ca. 1750-1828), one of the founding fathers of Warren County, Kentucky, came to Fayette County, Kentucky, from Rockbridge County, Virginia, after the death of his father, John Wallace, in 1782, with his wife Sarah and their five children. Three children were born in Fayette County; then the family came to this area in about 1796, which was then Logan County.

By an act of the Kentucky Legislature on 14 Dec 1796, Warren County was to be formed from Logan County, effective March, 1797. At the house of Captain James Stuart on 7 March 1797, having commissions from governor James Garrard appointing them justices of the peace, the following were administered several oaths and held the first court of Warren county: Bailey Anderson, James Campbell, Phenias Cox, Price Curd, James Dougan, John Garnete, John Marshall, William Mars, George Moore, James Stuart and Robert Wallace.

Robert served in several capacities in county government, including deputy surveyor, appraiser of several estates, deputy sheriff, and in 1805 was appointed sheriff of Warren County by Governor Christopher Greenup. He was also approved by the county court in 1821 to operate a tavern on the stagecoach line to Glasgow.

Most of Robert’s children were married in Warren County. They are as follows:

Will of Robert Wallace of Warren County, Kentucky

In the name of God amen. I Robert Wallace of the County of Warren and State of Kentucky being now in reasonable health and sound mind and wishing to direct in what manner my estate now in my hands shall be disposed of. I wish no administration on my estate by any person, but for my children to meet and divide it among them all, but Rebecahs heirs Robert and Tabitha who has already got their share and more-when the divide is making I wish the others to be generous with Sarah who I think has got the least. I wish my negro man Rhuben to belong to John, William and Thomas and be counted in their shares and to have him years about or bind him to such other, and I by all means treat well for he is a good slave. My Dear children when I am dead, bury me decently. There is in my drawer more than sufficient for the purpose. There is $7.50 in silver and twenty dollars in United States paper besides twenty dollars I lent to William Wallace. There will be more than one bed apiece for you. I wish you to let John McMullen have one with the cloths, his mother was a good and faithful wife to me, and raised geese and made nearly all the beds and bed cloths on the place and I think it just and right to do as I request you to and I expect you will think so yourselves.
