In those cases in which there was more than one plaintiff, the surname of the first named plaintiff is used. In two of the cases, members of the Rutherfurd family were defendants, and in one, John Stark Robertson appears to have been the defendant. Note that one item from this series, labelled Court papers -- Answer of Walter & CatherineRutherfurd -- Unidentified Suit is in Box 20, with other oversize material and volumes.
