James Orcutt vs.Daniel W. Stover, from Delaware county.


James Orcutt (1856-1925) mentioned in this notice of a lawsuit was the husband of my paternal 2nd-great grandaunt, Samantha E. Metzner (1857-1890).  By this time, James had remarried and was living in Muncie, Delaware County, Indiana.  I found this tidbit while searching newspaper records to see if there were any mentions of the Orcutt name.

Hartford City is in Blackford County while Muncie is the county seat in Delaware County.  I believe this article is saying that the case was moved to Blackford County from Delaware County.  Will have two courthouses to search.
