The next issue of Casefile Clues will discuss a "straw man" transaction in a credit under file from 1829. The file covers approximately 1817-1830. The property was purchased on credit and I had to avoid getting bogged in learning about the various acts of Congress that kept extending that credit as it took over ten years to get the property paid off.
There's some neat information in the file and a few questions that are raised as well. Stay tuned.
