King v. Pardee

96 U.S. 90


1. In Pennsylvania, a resulting trust in land, if not sought to be enforced for a period of twenty-one years, and not reaffirmed and continued, will, under ordinary circumstances, be extinguished.

2. That rule is especially applicable where the party having the legal title has, during the required period of twenty-one years, been in notorious and adverse possession, paying the taxes, exercising all the usual rights of owner ship, and his title has for the whole period been on record in the proper office.

The facts are fully stated in the opinion of the Court.
