Amanuensis Monday~Burwell J. Hamrick vs John H. Brown

Capt.. John C. Hamrick and John H. Brown were related through their children. Capt. Hamrick’s daughter Martha Hamrick married John Brown’s son William Lafayette Brown.

On 19 August 1853, William Lafayette died leaving 9 children all between the ages of infant to 21. They are all named within the probate records of Lauderdale County, Mississippi. [1]

Over the course of the next few years John H. Brown dies on 14 Sept. 1855 and Capt. Hamrick died on 1 Sept. 1856.

Thus we have this petition from Burwell J. Hamrick requesting the Court to intervene due to a conflict of interest.[2]
