      This is an action by Clara Chaison, as widow, and the other plaintiffs as, or in the right of, the children and heirs at law, of Jeff Chaison, deceased, against W. P. H. McFaddin, to recover the David Cunningham survey of 1,170 acres of land situated in Jefferson county, less a tract of 208 acres sold by Chaison and Hebert to W. P. H. McFaddin on February 7, 1885. The petition was filed February 2, 1901. Plaintiffs filed their first-amended petition July 19, 1901.

January 11, 1909, Intervener American Oil & Refining Company, joined by its duly qualified and acting receiver, J. D. Martin, filed its first-amended petition against defendant McFaddin, setting up the same averments of trespass to try title as in the original petition and substantially the same averments for the recovery of ....
