Syllabus

Forty-three years after the ancestor of the plaintiffs acquired title, more than twenty years after that ancestor had positive information of the wrong upon which the claims set up in this bill in equity are grounded, twenty-five years after the purchase by the defendant in good faith and with no knowledge of the wrong, this suit was commenced, without any assertion of the right now set up having been made during all that time. Held, that these facts disclosed laches which forbade the interference of a court of equity.

In equity. Decree dismissing the bill. Complainants appealed. The case is stated in the opinion.
