Den ex dem. Walker v. Turner

22 U.S. (9 Wheat.) 541

Syllabus

By the statute of limitations of Tennessee, of 1797, a possession of seven years is a protection only when held under a grant or under mesne conveyances which connect it with a grant.

A sheriff's deed, which is void for want of jurisdiction in the court under whose judgment the sale took place is not such a conveyance as that a possession under it will be protected by the statute of limitations.
