˹ 191 - And the said records and judicial proceedings authenticated as aforesaid, shall have such faith and credit given to them in every court within the United States, as they have by law or usage in the courts of the state from whence the said records are or shall be taken.
˹ 516 - THERE is nothing which so generally strikes the imagination, and engages the affections of mankind, as the right of . property ; or that sole and despotic dominion which one man claims and exercises over the external things of the world} in total exclusion of the right of any other individual in the universe.
˹ 531 - Jerusalem, out of their graves: and they shall spread them before the sun, and the moon, and all the host of heaven, whom they have loved, and whom they have served, and after whom they have walked, and whom they have sought, and whom they have worshipped: they shall not be gathered, nor be buried ; they shall be for dung upon the face of the earth.
˹ 158 - That any soldier being in actual military service, or any mariner or seaman being at sea, may dispose of his personal estate as he might have done before the making of this act.
˹ 8 - By the general law, and of common right, all the pews in a parish church are the common property of the parish : they are for the use, in common, of the parishioners, who are all entitled to be seated, orderly, and conveniently, so as best to provide for the accommodation of all.
˹ 194 - They are record evidence of a debt, or judgments of record, to be contested only in such way as judgments of record may be; and consequently are conclusive upon the defendant in every state except for such causes as would be sufficient to set aside the judgment in the courts of the state in which it was rendered.
˹ 8 - Harberdinck, do hereby give, devise, and bequeath unto the said minister, elders, and deacons of the Reformed Protestant Dutch Church in the city of New York...
˹ 309 - Every estate granted or devised to two or more persons in their own right shall be a tenancy in common, unless expressly declared to be in joint tenancy ; but every estate, vested in executors or trustees as such, shall be held by them in joint tenancy.
˹ 122 - I must take this opportunity of saying, that nothing can be more absurd than the notion, that there is to be any rigid presumption of law on such questions of fact, without reference to accompanying circumstances, such, for instance, as the age or health of the party. There can be no such strict presumption of law.
˹ 120 - I. c. 11.) the presumption of the duration of life, with respect to persons of whom no account can be given, ends at the expiration of seven years from the time when they were last known to be living.
