but not over cotton, It was throra
out of V3 state of everyday mono

news in a . nut shell : Mr. Cress,
cutter and buyer for Heath & Reid,
was notified Saturday morning by
Mr. Wm. Smith, of Concord, who
had been for years counsel for tha
family that he was one of three heirs
to an estate valued at from one to
two million dollars, part of which is
in this country and the rest in
Thos, Loyd Halsey was an uncle j
of the Meters Cross' C. B., J. M
an D. Brooks Cro38, He went to
Proyidence, R. I., and there amjsaed
a considerable fortune, and. after
ward went to Brazil, where he made
hi3 millions. He died recently
without issue and hia estate goes to
his next of kin the Cross heirs of
this county and Cabarrus. Mr.
Smith, of Concord, was notified by
iMr. Foster, a lawyer, of Providence,
R I , and will leave in a few days
for Providence, with power of attor
ney from the Cross heirs to act with
Mr, Foster in settling up the e3iate
He will also go to Brazil to represent
the Messr3 Jroes. Charlotte Obi
The Standard interviewed Ats
iorney W M Smith about all this
matter. He leas the will of the late
Thomas Lloyd Halsey, who died m
185G, leaving an estate valued ct
$2,000,000. By will, Messrs. Jno.
Carter Brown and Mosea Brown
Ives, of Providence, R. I, were ap
pointed trustees . to look after the
estate and pay the income from it
for life to Mrs. Maria Louici A .
drea del Valle, who lived in South
America, She with her family were
to return to America makeihi3 tnefr
home and adopt the name cf Halsey,
within five years. This they failed
to do. y
Thomaa Lloyd Halsey had three
sisters: Mrs. F M Cross (the grand
mother of the Crosses in this sec
tion) Mrs. Commodore Creighton
and Miss Sarah Halsey, who died
without issue. Sometime ago the
Supreme court of the United States
decided that Mrs. Andrea del Valle
was entitled to 'life interest, but the
other points were not settled.
Now that she is dead, it seems
clear that the descendants of Mr.
rfalsey's Bisters become the legal
heirs. Indeed there seems to be no
doubt. The final settlement of the
the matter, however, must neces
sarily be when the United States
Supreme Conrt renders another de
cision. If the result ia as expected,
one-half of this estate will fall to
the heira cf Mr. P M Cross,
M one sister died without
issue, leaving Mrs. Creighton acd
Mrs, Cross, the grandmother of
Messrs. Brooks Cross and his two
brothers, sole heirs.
Tho estate left is one-half in
America and onehalf in Buenos
Ayers, South America.
