Shumate South Carolina County of Laurens In Probate Court Elizabeth Wilson) Sarah Monroe) Et al)Petition for Petitioners)Partition Vs)of Real Estate Amanda Bolling) Deft.) This was an action for the Partition of the Real Estate of Josiah N. Bolling, deceased and came on for a final hearing on the 20th day of December 1877. The Plaintiffs claim to be entitled to one half the estate of the said Josiah N. Bolling, deceased, who died intestate and without children, and it was acknowledged that Amanda Bolling the prior defendant is the widow of said deceased. The right to partition the said estate involved the legitimacy of Josiah N. Bolling. It was proved by several witnesses on the part of Plaintiff, that Josiah N. Bolling was the son of one Lucinda Bolling, that the said Lucinda Bolling married one James Johnson and that the said Plaintiffs are the offspring of this marriage. Such in substance was the gist offered by the plaintiffs. On the part of the defense, it was proved that the said Lucinda Bolling was never but once married and then to one James Johnson. That the said Josiah N. Bolling was born four and one half months after this marriage. That the said James Johnson refused to permit the Mother, the said Lucinda, to nurse the child, but ordered it to taken from his premises, and gave as a reason that it was not his child, that not more than four days after the birth of said child, under the order of the said James Johnson, it was removed from his premises to the care of a relative of the said Lucinda and by this relative it was (unclear) and (unclear) It was further proved that the said James Johnson was never known to recognize the said Josiah N. Bolling as his son that on the contrary was heard time and again to deny his paternity. In the Bolling family --- the family to which Lucinda Bolling belonged --- it was proven to be an open secret and a fact admitted that the said Josiah N. Bolling was a bastard child and that one James Dunklin was his father. Such in substance was the proof on the part of the defense. It is proper just here to say that the Plaintiff objected to the introduction of any testimony as to who was the father of the said Josiah N. Bolling and grounded this objection upon the fact that he was born in wedlock. It is true the law presumes every child born in wedlock to be legitimate, but this Court is of opinion that presumptions in law may be rebutten (sic) by proper & competent testimony. And so Rules. Otherwise mere presumptions in law would govern our Courts. It will not be forgotten that this is an old scandal exhumed from the graves of near seventy years. Yet, the entwining (?) years have not clouded one fact, via, that James Johnson, the husband of Lucinda Bolling, and the Bolling family of which she was a member, ever regarded the said Josiah N. Bolling as a bastard child. Such is the opinion of this Court and governing itself by the testimony ordered it decided that Josiah N. Bolling was a bastard child. As to bastards & those who may inherit from them, the common law prevails in this State. It was recorded in 4 Sec/page 439 in the case of Jones vs. Burdin, et al that a bastard being nullieu Jelius (?), has neither father nor mother, nor brother nor sister. First is regarded as a separate creature unconnective with the human race by any birth except those he may form by his own progeny. That Amanda Bolling, the said defendant is the widow of the said Josiah N. Bolling deceased is not denied. In accordance then, with Sec 12, page 437 of the Revision Statutes, this Court is of Opinion that the said Amanda Bolling as widow of the said Josiah N. Bolling deceased is entitled to the whole estate of said deceased both Real and Personal. And so the Court decrees.Jan. 2nd 1878A. W. Burnside J. R. L. C.
