Moores v. White, July Term 1846, Supreme Court of Appeals of Virginia: In 1833, Matthew White filed his bill in the Superior Court of Augusta county against Jacob Moore as an absent defendant and James J. Moore as the administrator of Isaac Moore deceased, and the other heirs and distributees of Isaac Moore, in which he charged, that Jacob Moore was indebted to him in four several sums of money; and that he had removed from the State of Virginia. That his father Isaac Moore had departed this life intestate leaving a large real and personal estate, of which the said Jacob was entitled to a part as heir and distributee. ... The administrator and heirs answered the bill, and insisted that Jacob Moore had received from his father in his lifetime his full share of his father's eatate; and they relied upon a receipt given by the said Jacob to Isaac Moore. This receipt bears date December 30th, 1830, and says, "Settled and received this day in full of my father Isaac Moore, the full amount of my portion of legacy from him, including all former receipts and settlements. And I hereby renounce all claim against him forever. Witness my hand and seal the day and date above written." Signed, Jacob Moore (seal). The original court had ruled that this, the only receipt produced at the first trial, covered only $400, and Jacob's share was considerably larger, directing the estate to pay Matthew White. An appeal presented additional receipts adding $1600, not accepted by the court. The ruling of this appeal allowed the additional $1600, reversed some technical points involving court costs, and remanded the case back to the original court. [Presumably, since now the receipts were indeed larger than Jacob's share, there was no payment to Matthew White and the estate was divided only among the remaining six heirs.]
