Fighting Over An Estate
Mrs. Applegate Objects to the Way Her Mother's Estate Was Settled
Mrs. Caroline Applegate, daughter of the late Mrs. Caroline Lufborrow of Middletown, is objecting to the settlement of the estate of her mother. richard Lufburrow and William J. thompson of Middletown were the executors of her mother's will, and Mrs. Applegate objects to the manner in which the estate was settled. The final accounts of the estate were filed two years ago. Mrs. Lufburrow owned the hotel at Middletown, and the executors sold it to Mr. Lufburrow for $4,000. Mrs. Applegate claims that the hotel property was worth $6,000, and she wants the deed set aside and the property sold for what she claims it is worth. Judge Heisley said that he did not think he had the right to set the deed aside, as that would be a proper matter to go before the court of chancery; but that if there were mistakes or irregularities in the management of the estate, that matter could be re-opened. No decision was reached when the matter came up in court last week, but it will come up again for action on Thursday of next week.
