Johnson is the attorney for the complainants. The late Mr. Baker owned six 80's in Livingston county and about 200 acres in this county, in all estimated to be worth $75,000. there are two sets of children and the action looked like a race between the heirs to get into court first, as Mr. Baker only died on the 8th of this month.
