1869-07-26: MacDougall (Anzar et. al) Answer Bolado/Arques’ Suit Re: Partition

Monday, July 26, 1869 – Suit: Frederick A. MacDougall's (Anzar et. al.) answer and cross complaint:

That so much of plaintiff's (Joaquin Bolado & José G. Arques) prayer seeks to obtain decree of this court declaring the pretended partition a good and valid partition; or declaring plaintiffs to be exclusive owners of that part of the lands called Santa Ana; or as seems to establish the pretended dividing line set up in plaintiff's complaints, or compelling these defendants to make conveyances and assurances of title to plaintiffs to be denied.

MacDougall requests court to decree that MacDougall has an undivided 12th of lands granted by letters patent, and the said defendants Juan Francisco Anzar, Anatolio Anzar & Policronio Anzar each own 5 undivided 36ths; and said plaintiffs as among themselves to be the owners of one undivided half part thereof, and that the land be divided in an equitable and just manner.
