PAR Number 20883903
Location: St. Landry Parish, Louisiana; Year: 1839

Abstract: Joseph Guillory, a free man of color, represents that he is the "owner and actual possessor" of a tract of land in the parish of St. Landry. He charges that Jean Allain Jr., also a free man of color, has frequently trespassed on his land, "cut and destroyed large quantities of timber," and made eight hundred rails from the timber. Guillory alleges that it is Allain's intention to remove the rails and convert them to his "private use." He therefore seeks an injunction to prevent Allain from removing the rails and further trespassing on the land. He also seeks $200 in damages for the waste caused on the land.
