That said John has enjoyed the whole & entire profits of said land since about the year 1800, except for a few years thereafter during which said Joseph remained thereon, and has never accounted with his (word illegible) for their portions of said profits, or any part thereof.

Filed May 12th 1823

May 24, 1823

The separate answer of John Shawhan to a bill in chancery filed by William Pugh vs. him & all in the Bourbon Circuit Court—This respondent saving & reserving the benefit of exception to the many untruths & misrepresentations in sd bill contained for answer thereto or so mush thereof as he is advised is material says that it is true that a certain William Miller at an early date obtained a patent for 330 acres of land situated on the waters of Townsend in the present county of Bourbon which is filed and refered to herewith—But he denies that said Miller ever made sale of sd 330 acres of land to William Hoy or any other person for his use—or that the sale alledged in the Compl’ts bill from Hoy to Pugh Rankin & Bell ever took place—He states that he has heard it said many years ago that there was a claim set up by sd Pugh Rankin & Bell for sd 330 a. of land and being interested in a part thereof he has made diligent search in many offices of record & a general enquiry for ant title papers that might exist to show that there was a conveyance from the patentee Miller to said Rankin—but that he has totally failed in finding any proof whatever (concerning?) to establish that fact—with regard to the division of sd land this respondant knows nothing and (two or three words illegible) that there was such a division as set forth in the bill this respondant is unwilling to admit that the mere partition of land amongst strangers or persons not entitled should divest the pattentee of his title & vest in themselves—This respondant admits that his father Dan’l Shawan did purchase of sd Rankin & he believes gave him the sum of $200-or 60 pounds—for his claim to the 130 a. the whole of which sum was paid off by this Respon. Father in his life time which this respondant now owns and occupies—that this purchase was made in the year 1789--&his father settled thereon immediately and continued to occupy it untill his death in 1791. At that early date the land was considered of very little value and this Respd’ts coheirs looked upon the land or their small portions as being a matter of scarcely any importance the more especially as it was very doubtfull whether the claim held by their father was of any validity—Some years after the death of his sd father his sisters becoming of age & getting married he thought it advisable to purchase of them their interests and accordingly did obtain an instrument of writing from Eli Robinson who married Elisabeth Shawan the sister of this Respd’t & sd Elisabeth transferred all hir right to sd land dated 22nd July 1799 which is herewith filed & made part of this Ans’r marked "A" He also obtained a bond from Dan’l Shawan his brother to convey his interest to sd land which is also filed mk’d "B." And this respd’t states that he would have purchased the interest of the other heirs but that some short time after making the purchase of sd Robinson sd William Miller came to this Respd’ts house and informed him that the land on which he lived belonged to him sd Miller and threatened to commence a suit vs. him immediately. Sd Miller exhibited his title papers and stated that he had never transferred or conveyed sd land and there was no claim that could be set up by any person except himself—That as to the claim of Rankin it was worth nothing—But in as much as this respd’t was in possession & he did not wish to incur the trouble of a suit he would take £19.10 for the land which this respd’t after taking full and ample time to inform himself upon the subject by examining & enquiry into the validity of the claim concluded to give; and accordingly paid that sum & received a deed for sd land in his own name—having previously ascertained as he believes & now alleges that the claim under Rankin was entirely deficient—sd deed is herewith filed mk’d "C" & refered to as part of this ans’r—This respondant states that all his coheirs except Robinson & wife & Robert Shawhan & Williams & wife were living at or near the house of this respd’t at the time of sd deed was procured from sd Miller at that not one of them (although they & all them were fully cognizant of the contract & execution & delivery of sd deed to this respd’t) either participated in said contract or or objected to this respd’t receiving sd deed in his own name—That they were fully advised of the whole business—of the insufficiency of the afores’d bond from Rankin to their ancestor and that this respd’t was purchasing in his own name & right—This respd’t states that after the execution of sd deed it was universally admitted by all his brothers & sisters & their husbands that he was entitled to the Land and that sd Robinson (word illegible): of whom he had previously purchased had taken his bond for payment of a part of the money he agreed to give them for their portion & it has never been presented or payment required upon it as it was clearly & distinctly understood that it was utterly void for the want of consideration—That the residue of the heirs at that time and at all times since have recognized & universally admitted that this respd’t was justly & fairlyentitled to sd land by virtue os sd purchase from sd Miller; untill the Compl’t with whom this respondent has unfortunately been at issue for some time, fraudulently intending to injure & harrass this def’t procured a conveyance by misrepresentation to sd Robinson & wife Williams & wife: for a paltry consideration—This respondent admits that some land was cleared after the death of his father & prior to the purchase afores’d from Miller, but that it was done by himself & his brothers for the purpose of making bread for the support of his sisters & his mother—This respd’t denies that he was reimbursed by Rankin or (word illegible) in sum of 19 pound, 10 shillings which he paid to sd Miller as a consideration for sd deed—it is trice he called upon sd Rankin for a recourse upon sd bond but he absolutely refused & failed to make any reimbursement upon sd bond—It is admitted that this respd’t has occupied (and he alledges peaceably honestly & uninterrupted) this sd 130 a. of land ever since the marriage & removal of his brothers & sisters therefrom—And that he would have purchased from the residue of sd heirs as well as from Robinson & wife & Dan’l Shawan their supposed interest to land under sd bond from Rankin but the claim held by sd tenure was considered be & worth nothing as heretofore alledged—With regard to the dower claim of this Resp’ts mother he can only say that it has never been required by her or any other person that said dower should be (word illegible) of as she always considered that she had no claim for (word illegible) but that this respondent was entitled to the land in his own right—This respondent further states that he did some years after making the sd purchase from sd Miller make a verbal sale to his co-def’t Joseph Shawan of about 50 a. of sd land and that he resided thereon for 12 to 15 years & made some improvements—the sd Joseph became anxious to remove & this respd’t then purchased his improvements and paid him (two words cut off) consideration therefor—This respondent relies upon the statute of limitation and the statute of frauds & (perjuries?) as well as the broad & manifest equity of his case to prevent the interruption of the long peaceable & uninterrupted possession of his land & prays hence to be dismissed with his costs (word illegible)
