They Can Drag On

Court cases can drag on for years and in some locations are filed when they are settled. This may take place after some of the original litigants have died. I knew my one ancestor died by 1812 and a case involving him in Virginia drug on until 1827--which is when it was indexed. Had I assumed my guy couldn't be mentioned in an 1827 court case, I would have missed the reference.
