Strong v. Whybark

Supreme Court of Missouri
102 S.W. 968 (1907)


Seth Hayden conveyed a parcel of real property by warranty deed to William Moore in consideration for $640 cash. Moore did not record the deed. Hayden later conveyed the same property by quitclaim deed to Josephine Hayden in consideration for five dollars and “natural love and affection.” Josephine Hayden recorded her deed. Moore recorded his deed more than six years later. Strong (plaintiff) claimed title to the property as the successor in interest through a chain of conveyances running from Josephine Hayden. Whybark (defendant) was one of several parties claiming rights as successors in interest to William Moore. Strong filed a quiet title suit. John Boyden filed an answer claiming an interest in part of the subject property. The trial court ruled in Boyden’s favor. Strong moved for a new trial. The trial court denied Strong’s motion. Strong appealed.
