Irving Heirs Win Title To Ranch
Litigation over the title to a Nicasio ranch of 1100 acres was ended by Judge E. I. Butler this week when he ordered judgment for Harry P., William J., Grace M. and James P. Irving, grandchildren of the late Mrs. Ellen Taylor.
The plaintiff in the action, Joseph Taylor, died in San Francisco shortly after commencing the suit. The action was carried on, however, by designated representatives and prosecuted by Attorney E. B. Taugher, of San Francisco. The defendants were represented by the law firm of Martinelli & Martinelli.
It developed at the trial that in 1908 Mrs. Taylor deeded the ranch to her grandchildren, the defendants, with a life estate reserved to her husband, Joseph Taylor, and provided that upon the latter’s death the same interest should be reserved to her son, Thomas Irving. Irving died a few years later.
