- Joel H Jenkins died in 1859 in Rowan county. He possessed a large estate and slaves in North Carolina and Arkansas. In total it was said to be worth in the region of [dollars] 250,000 consisting of town lots, lands in Rowan and Iredell counties, valuable land in Arkansas, various solvent notes totalling over [dollars] 100,000, numerous slaves, railroad bonds, stock in the North Carolina Railroad Company, and Florida bonds, all of which passed into the hands of the defendants, Roberts and Davis, as executors. After payment of debts there was about [dollars] 150,000 left. The Supreme Court made an order for an account and settlement of the estate of the testator. Proceedings had unfortunately been commenced in the Superior Court where the judge correctly ruled that he had no jurisdiction in the matter. On appeal, this decision was affirmed and the parties were instructed to make a case to the Judge of Probate. The relief for the three female plaintiffs could not be sought until a trust fund had been set up for them. The three other plaintiffs were not embraced by the trust according to the Supreme Court. There was also a misjoinder in respect of the defendant Davis as he had no concern with the management of the trust fund.
