Geauga Co., Ohio, Court of Common Pleas, 3 October 1838
 
Bump Administrator of the Estate of Stannard v. Young and JS

Historical Introduction
In October 1837, Claudius Stannard, a longtime resident of , Ohio, commenced legal proceedings against JS and . Young and JS borrowed $235.50 from Stannard on 11 October 1836, about a week after they and Parley P. Pratt entered into an agreement with Stannard to purchase a stone quarry. The promissory note was to be paid when the first annual payment for the agreement became due on 3 October 1837. The note was not paid, however, and Stannard commenced an action in assumpsit. The matter came to trial in April 1838, but JS and Young had relocated to three months earlier, and in their absence, a default judgment was rendered against them.
Stannard died in 1841. The following May, successfully petitioned the probate court to be appointed as administrator for Stannard’s estate. After failed attempts in June and October 1842 to locate JS and , who were now residing in , the court revived the judgment Stannard obtained against them in accordance with law. In March 1843, Sheriff Luther Bates levied the defendants’ property, which he offered for sale to satisfy the judgment. The property went unsold, however, “for want of bidders.” It is unknown whether Bump collected the judgment.
