This cause being reached upon the regular call of the Docket came to be heard before the Honorable HAL H. HAYNES, Chancellor upon the entire record and argument of Counsel from all which the Court is of opinion that complainants Martha A. SARRETT and Dora SARRETT are not entitled to the relief sought for reasons set out in a written opinion filed, by the Court and ordered to be made a part of the record and Certified as such by the Clerk & Masters in case of an appeal on writ of error.

It is therefore Ordered, Adjudged, and Decreed by the Court that complainants Bill be dismissed. Complainant Dora SARRETT and her Sureties on the Original prosecution here towit: Hugh SARRETT, J. Crockett SARRETT, and W. P. WITEHALL will pay One-Third (1/3rd) of the costs of this cause and Complainant Martha A. SARRETT and her Sureties on both Bonds towit: Hugh SARRETT, J. Crockett SARRETT, W. H. DOUGLASS, ROBERT M. DOUGLASS, Bettie R.? DOUGLASS and G. L. ATCHLEY will pay the remaining Two-Thirds (2/3rd) of the cost and instructions will accordingly issue. The solicitation for complainant moved the Court to so amend the pleadings so as to allow recovery and account against defendant (Peter W. Sarrett) for the Taxes on the "Homestead" and "Dower" tracts and the Court being of opinion that such prayer would be in conflict with the original prayer of the Bill as that it could not stand, disallows the amendment, and it is so provided that the dismissal of this suit will not in any mAnner preclude Complainant Martha A. SARRETT from suing for and recovering such taxes.

On the trial of this cause the Complainant Martha A. SARRETT introduced as evidence the "Mortality Tables" on page 825 and "Annuity Tables" on page 826 of "Suits in Chancery" by GIBSON and DAVE will be included in the manuscript in case of appeal on the Original. May be used from the book, the same being a part of the evidence in the case. The Complainant made exceptions to certain evidence in the case which, with the Courts rulings thereon are filed in the cause and is made a part of the record and be included in the manuscript.

From the foregoing Decree Complainants pray an appeal to the next Term of the Supreme Court which is granted upon Complainants executing prosecution Appeal Bond on otherwise complying with the law and 30 days from the rise of this Court is allowed by consent in which to perfect the appeal.

And therefore Court adjourned until Court in Course.

REMEMBRANCE OF Martha Ann (ATCHLEY) SARRETT The following was copied from JEAN ATCHLEY (GRAHAM) BROWN, of Englewood, Co., Page 6, Date Unknown:28 Martha Ann (ATCHLEY) SARRETT (1848-1931) AnnA MAY DOUGLAS states "I am the GrandDaughter of "Martha Ann (ATCHLEY) SARRETT", my GrandFather ROBERT SMITH ATCHLEY's was a half-brother, of Martha A. (ATCHLEY) SARRETT who was living with her daughter, Mrs. ELIZABETH (SARRETT) DOUGLAS, who was my (AnnA MAY' DOUGLAS) Mother. At that time a son, (This writers GrandFather) Hugh SARRETT, was living in Kansas City. What Aunt Martha Ann (ATCHLEY) SARRETT told me about her life was somewhat as follows:

"My Grandfather was THOMAS ATCHLEY. ISAAC was my father. My father had three great big well-built log houses, as nice as any. My brother ROBERT had a big two-story log house. In those early days, each helped the other. All helped one and we had good times. When a man wanted to build a house or a barn, or to clear a field, on the day appointed the men came and had a "log- rolling." The women got meals and had "quilting bees." The young folks had good times, too. Indoor parties, out-of-door fun and games. In the springtime, trips into the beautiful rhododendron-covered hills where dogwood bushes and many other lovely wild flowers bloomed. In the fall we had nut-gathering parties. Wild grapes were plentiful. Sometimes they had "corn-shuckings" at the different homes, and "pea-hullings." Those were good times as well as busy times. Each helped the other. All helped by bearing one another's burdens in those days. Shoes where scarce, and we valued them. Sometimes in the summer, young folks would carry their new shoes as far as the branch near the church, then wash their feet and put on their shoes to go into the Church."
