Crittenden Circuit Court of June 1907

(Editor's Note: Among old papers I have is an original copy of the flyer distributed for the Crittenden Circuit Court term of June 1907. I have included the text from the nearly 101-year-old flyer below. My ancestor W.L. Bennett brought a case against the Dycusburg Canning Co.)

I saw my ggggUncle, Robert Heath on the second day of court. I understand what the first same is, but not the second, unless it's the same as the person above him did, wounding someone.

I've been doing research on the Heath's for at least 5 years, off and on, never realizing there were sites like yours and 'Forgotten Passages'.

Thank you very much.
