Lincoln & Herndon have 17 cases in the Sangamon County Circuit Court. They dismiss two and win three by default. In Yocum et al. v. Yocum et al., a partition case in which they represent complainants, the court appoints commissioners to divide lands. Lincoln & Herndon lose Mauzy v. Brown, an appeal of right of property, when the jury finds that the property belongs to the plaintiff. When the defendant fails to appear in court in Bailer v. Davis, their client wins a judgment of $112.30. Lincoln writes and signs a declaration for his client, Joseph Nelson, the plaintiff in Nelson v. Busher and Nelson. The court continues Lincoln & Herndon's remaining cases. Record; Herndon-Weik Collection, Library of Congress, Washington, DC.
