31 Ky.L.Rptr. 1306
Court of Appeals of Kentucky.
Nov. 8, 1907.
Appeal from Circuit Court, Harlan County.
"Not to be officially reported."
Action by James Dean against W. F. Hall to reform a deed. From a judgme
nt for defendant, plaintiff appeals. Reversed, and new trial ordered.
A grantor in a warranty deed, which, either by fraud or mistake, embra
ces lands not intended to be conveyed,has the right to have the deed corr
ected, and this is true even though the grantor has no title to such land
s, for the law will not impose upon him the hardship of defending the tit
le to lands which he did not own and which were improperly included in t
he deed.
Plaintiff alleged that he owned two tracts ofland for which he obtain
ed patents; that defendant purchased from the heirsof H., one of whom w
as plaintiff's wife, all lands owned by H. at the time ofhis death; th
at plaintiff, to enable his wife to convey, joined in the deed,and th
at by mistake plaintiff's tracts, which were not owned or claimed by H., w
ere included in the deed. Defendant denied the allegations, except the exe
cution of the deed, and affirmatively alleged that he purchased all lan
dsowned by H. at the time of his death, and that he disclaimed any tit
le to thetracts of plaintiff under or by virtue of the patents issu
ed to plaintiff. Held, the disclaimer was insufficient to warrant judgme
nt for defendant, as itleft in issue H.'s ownership of the tracts in ques
tion at the time of his death.
*98 J. G. & J. S. Forester, for appellant. W. F. Hall and Greene & V
anWinkle, for appellees.
This is an action to reform and correct a deed from appellant, James D
ean, and others, to appellee, W. F. Hall. The petition alleges that appell
ant had surveyed for himself two tracts of land on Millcreek in Harlan co
unty, Ky., embracing about 100 acres, which are describedin the petitio
n, and for which he obtained patents from the commonwealth of Kentuc
ky on November 1, 1900, and appellant is the owner of two said tracts ofl
and; that on August 9, 1902, appellee purchased from Mary Dean, wife of ap
pellant, and Julia Ann Clem, wife of John C. Clem, who are both daughte
rs ofW. T. Hall, deceased, all the interest they had in the land of sa
id W. T. Hall owned by him at the time of his death; that on said date, f
or the consideration of $150 paid to Mary Dean and Julia Ann Clem, appell
ee caused to be drawn up and presented to them for execution and delive
ry a deed of conveyance,which, as appellant then believed, embraced on
ly the lands claimed and ownedby said W. T. Hall at the time of his deat
h, but which, as a matter of fact,embraced not only the land own
ed by W. T. Hall, but the two tracts of land patented by the commonweal
th of Kentucky to appellant; that appellant joined insaid deed with his w
ife only for the purpose of enabling her to convey her interest in her fat
her's estate, and appellant did not sell appellee any land,nor did appell
ee pay him anything for any land; that appellant is an illiterate man, a
nd at the time said deed was made he relied solely on appellee to prepa
re same so as to include only the land owned by said W. T. Hall, but tha
