Was this the same property subject to the lawsuit? Stated in part:..."03 Jan 1868 Hopkins County court record was a lawsuit against four men who had "seized in fee" part of Hobson Brown's land grant for debts." I don't know if the above-described property was involved in the lawsuit, but it is very possible.
