Mortimer Mitchell's Neighbor Vine Allen Tolson --Part Two --How Did I Get Here? My Amazing Genealogy Journey
Newbern Journal of Commerce,  23 Feb 1869, Tue,  Page 1

You can see from this newspaper post Vine Allen Tolson was not able to make payment on money owed to Alexander Mitchell and his son Thomas. This must have been an extremely stressful time for Tolson family. Vine's own words from the trust deed most accurately describe the dire circumstances he found himself in . 

"if the said sale should take place I will be entirely delivered of the only means whereby I can reasonably expect to raise sufficient money where with to support my family and pay my debts"

Did Vine Allen Tolson get his land back? That will be in my next post.
