Final action has been taken before Judge Koelsch and the partition of the Jerome B. Walling estate has been made. This is a case of more than ordinary interest, because it has been so long since Mr. Walling’s decease, and because the final settlement was made without a particle of friction and to the advantage of the heirs.
The will was probated in 1897, dividing the entire estate equally among the heirs, all of whom has since drawn some portion of their bequest. The estate was originally in real estate entirely, but since the death of the elder Walling this has been turned into cash, so yesterday’s distribution was in coin. Horace E. Neal was the executor of the estate
