Court case, Jacob S. Zorger vs. Drury Logan, DeWitt County, Illinois, 1873

Drury Logan, son of Zachariah Logan and Margaret “Peggy” Brown Logan, was involved in a lawsuit in 1871. Two years later, he was a defendant in another suit. The following documents were culled from a more extensive file from DeWitt County, Illinois, involving a lawsuit between Jacob S. Zorger and Drury Logan in 1873. Drury lost this case (and the appeal), but the jury awarded Zorger $6 instead of the $50 in damages he sought.
