This case concerned the ranking and sale of the estate of Alexander Campbell of Raschoilley. In that ranking and sale, creditors Douglas, Heron, and Company objected to claims made by Jean Fisher and Barbara Campbell, Alexander’s mother and sister, respectively. In particular, the objectors argued that Jean and Barbara were not entitled to payment on bonds left to them by Alexander’s father, James Campbell, because the women had already obtained the benefits of residing with Alexander for a period of time. The petitioners also made a number of smaller objections.
