The Supreme Court of Alabama tried a case on appeal from the Circuit Court of Marengo co. AL. The judge was Hon. Robert Dougherty. Briefly summarized, Maria F. JONES made a suit against David ESPY, for breach of promise after he failed to marry her. She and her sisters testified that on several occassions in 1853, 1854, and 1856 David ESPY had made promises to marry her. Maria JONES also had a bastard child by David ESPY, not named in the court document, born March 1 1854.
