U.S. Supreme Court

Slaughter v. Glenn, 98 U.S. 242 (1878)

Slaughter v. Glenn

98 U.S. 242


1. Lands in Texas belonging to a married woman are termed in that state her "separate property," and she has in equity all the power to dispose of them which could be given to her by the amplest deed of settlement.

2. During the absence of her husband, when she had the exclusive management of her interests, a married woman owning in her own right such lands conveyed them to A. by deed, which she acknowledged before the proper officer, as if she were a feme sole. She invested the purchase money in

another tract, and A. sold the lands to B. Some years afterwards, she and

her husband brought an action to recover them. B. filed his bill, praying that the action be enjoined and his title quieted. Held that in view of the decisions of the Supreme Court of Texas as to the effect of such a conveyance, he was entitled to the relief prayed for.

The facts are stated in the opinion of the Court.
