Interesting Land Decision Has Been Handed Down.

Fargo Forum: The minor heirs of a deceased homesteader are not required to make improvements and live on the claim in order to get title to the land. That was the point made in a decision handed down by Register C. C. Shuyler and Receiver J. J. Jordan last year in the contest of Lee Adee against the minor heirs of Geo. M. Moore.

It appears that Moore filed on S ½, se ¼, ne 1/4 , se ¼, and se 1/4 , ne ¼ section 32-1444-71. The entryman died March 15, 1909 and his wife [Anna Louise Winjum] died April 4, 1908, leaving three minor children, Floyd, Adeline and Althia.

Adee started a contest holding that improvements had to be made. He offered to withdraw the contest should the land be improved, for he stated that if he didn’t contest the claim some one else would.

The local landoffice held that the minor heirs of the entrymen were not required by law to improve the land. Lars J. Winjun of Ulen, Minn., is the guardian of the children and is represented by Peterson and Adams of Moorhead.

Adams appealed to the department of the interior, which handed down a decision affirming the local office. The decision was received in Fargo to-day.
