    2. [S2238] Reports of Cases Argued and Determined in the Supreme Court of Judicature of the State of Indiana, Volume 2 (Reliability: 2), 26 Oct 2019.
      The case, Sackett v. Wilson was filed in Marion Circuit Court in October 1826. Letus Sackett had filed a claim against the estate of a Isaac Wilson, whose widow was executrix. Following Wilson's death, his widow remarried, and Sackett or his attorney attempted to make her new husband a arty to the case. The Marion court overruled the motion and proceeded to dismiss the case because of the widow's remarriage. In November 1827, the Indiana Supreme Court ruled that the Marion court had correctly overruled the motion to make the new husband a party in the case but had incorrectly dismissed the case noting "the marriage of the defendant did not in any respect affect her liability . . . . and she could not, by taking a husband, abate the suit, or prevent its progressing against her alone."
