I'm not sure if this will help you or not, but in Smith County Tenn. Chancery Court Records 1824-1871 by Partlow:
William L. Hughes and Robert Wright versus Michael Duffy and Patrick Duffy. The injunction is dissolved. 31 Jan 1849. (Chancery Rules, p.356).
Frances Duffy versus William B. Crank and others. The parties have compromised. 13 Aug 1849. (p.366)
Elizabeth J. Duffy, Administratrix of James B. Duffy, versus Albert G., Elizabeth, William, Adela, Mary J., and Almira Duffy, minors. The deceased James B. Duffy owned a house and lot in Dixon Springs and also several negroes. It would not be profitable for the widow and chldren to live on the land. It is too small. 11 Aug 1857. (Chancery Minutes 1853, p.320-321).
Elizabeth J. Duffy, Administratrix, versus Albert G., William, Adela, Mary J., and Almira Duffy by their guardian, H.H. Bradley. 11 Aug 1857. (p.344).
Hope this helps!
