Apparently, Robert McCuiston did notperfect the title to the land; so Lord Granville's land agents wouldnot honor the inheritance by Jane Ruth McCuiston, so she repurchasedthe land. Soonafter, in 1765, Jane remarried to Thomas Blair, and theysold her grant on 4 February 1765 to her half-brother, James Archer.According to the lawsuit, Moses Ruth attempted to help out with thepurchase of the land, and his granddaughters thought the land belongedto them. Jane's daughters, Ruth and Jane filed the law suit againsttheir mother in about 1779, but thne dropped the case, and thenrefiled the case again in early 1800s.
