#242 Estate of Emedicus Murphy, dec'd.: Pet. Let /Adm. by Eugenia Bass of Wash. Co. MS on or about 15 Sept 1865, states that Emedicus Murphy passed leaving no wife so far as she, the petitioner knows. He owned 1/2 interest in a plantation on Lake Jackson in partnership with Eugenia. The enemy took off everything, but one negro girl and a small amount of personal property worth about $2,000, and since 5 months have passed since he decd., she requests to be appointed the Adm. of his Estate.
[Note: Eugenia Bate marr. Council R. Bass first and they lived in Wash. Co. MS After his death, she marr. 2nd Joseph Bertinatti, an Italian Count with the Diplomatic Corps. Mar. 26, 1867 A.B.Carson Adm. petitions for sale of property. Franklin A. Burke, Exec. of Est of Wm. B. Murphy dec'd, files petition 22 July 1867, stating that Wm. B. Murphy decd., a citizen of Tenn., and a brother of Emedicus Murphey, decd. of Wash. Co. MS. Further states that Wm B. died after Emedicus and was an heir of Emedicus. He believed that Mrs. E.P. Bertinatti (Eugenia Bass) owes the Murphy Estate $10,000 or more. The other heirs reside in N.C. Petition of S.W. Ferguson, Adm. states that Mrs. Bertinatti is now a resident of Constantinople and out of jurisdicition and her property is involved in much litigation, and that the heirs of Emedicus may never see any portion of the debt.- filed 15 Jan. 1868.

pkt. #204 15 June 1867: John A. Miller vs. Eugenia P. Bertinatti, et al.
Orig. Bill filed 15 June 1867: Miller, Complt., a resident of Wash. Co. MS names the defendants as Eugenia P. Bertinatti and her husband Jos. Bertinatti; Phillip Rotchford & Shepherd Brown- surviving partners in firm of Rotchford Brown & Co., merchants; Cornelius Fellows, Daniel P. Logan & Thompson Greenfield, merchants trading in firm Fellows & Co. in New Orleans ($9,783+int.); E.P. Tyree and any other unknown persons interested in Est. of the sd. Eugenia, as creditors. Miller contends that Eugenia owns a tract of land in Wash. Co. - in T14N, R9W @1750 ac., but it is hopelessly in debt. Unless the existing court order for the sale of sd. property is stopped, no one will regain a portion of their money. Miller seeks an order for the court to rent out sd. land, and repay the debts that way. Eugenia also owns an undivided 1/2 of 838 ac. in T14N, R9W +crops, mules, etc. Eugenia's address is Washington City (D.C.) or Constantinople, Turkey, where her husb. is Minister to the King of Italy. The debts were incurred before she married Bertinatti, when she was a widow of Council Bass, decd.// A Cross Bill has suggested that there was a conspiracy between Eugenia, Ella, and Tyree to defraud creditors// Depositions for the Defdt. follow: J.J. Mhoon, taken 2 Nov. 1867 "I am 47 yrs. old, a res. of Memphis." Knows that Miss Ella Bass, the dau. of Eugenia leased a Plantation on the River to Gen. W.B. Bate, the partner of E.P. Tyree who acted as overseer of the sd. place. Mhoon does not for one minute believe the Gen. would lend himself to any fraudulant scheme. When questioned about the relationship between Mhoon, Eugenia, Tyree, - Mhoon states he is distantly related to Eugenia and Tyree and friendly to all. He doesn't know the age or place of birth of Ella Bass. Tyree has married a cousin of Eugenia's.// James H. Bate- age 26 yrs., a res. of Memphis, a Commission Merchant. He states the name of the Plantation in question was "Green Grove" on the Riverside. James is a cousin of Eugenia's, and E.P. Tyree is his brother-in-law. He continues by saying that Ella Bass is the dau. of
(cont. p. 21)
Eugenia's, @21 yrs. old, born TN, "I think" and that Ella married at the end of the War. Taken 2 Nov. 1867.// Both parties in the preceeding Depositions make a firm statement that they do not believe the parties concerned entered into "a secret agreement".//Attachment by Carson, Shrf. (#1621)// Answer of E.P. Tyree, Nov. 1867, who denies being a Agent of Eugenia's, states that in the fall of 1865, he and Wm. B. Bate, a resident of Nashville, TN leased land for 3 yrs. from Henry C. Bate, an Agent of sd. Eugenia. The sd. place was known as the Bass & Murphy Place. At the time Eugenia was living in Washington City, and Emidicus Murphy, who owned the plantation with her, had died and his heirs had never appeared to take over any part of the land. Then in 1867, Tyree and Bate leased Riverside Plantation from Ella Bass- sometimes called Green Grove Plt. He denies any conspiracy.// By Nov. Term 1867, other creditors file claims: Ben Hardaway of Warren Co. MS, Wm. Frazier Kelly, by his agent A.D. Kelly debt owed since Jan. 1861- New Orleans: A.B. Carson of Wash. Co.// Injunction was lifted as far as the cotton crop was concerned, and Tyree may ship and sell it in order to pay the rent, now due.//in Nov. 1870- Case Dismissed without prejudice//
