Mills Irrevocable Trust, Leonard Charles Mills Jr., Frederick Odeil Mills and Jane Elizabeth Mills McCallister, trustees
PA-Rosalee Juba-Plumley; J-Eagloski
* Pauley and the individual defendants are heirs to the estate of Anne S. Mills. That includes property on Crooked Creek in Scott Depot. In 2004, the state acquired about 9 of the 56 acres to re-route U.S. 35. Those proceeds have been distributed, some going into a trust escrow. Most of the old residence was not in the right of way and didn't need to be torn down for the road project. Pauley wants the partition of the Anne S. Mills Estate property and asks that her share be "in-kind" and given her shared border with the lot, she seeks that lot as a portion of her share. Pauley seeks partition "in-kind" of the Anne S. Mills estate, her share of the "in-kind" partition be the portion of real estate that shares a border with her property and contains the Anne S. Mills' residence, an injunction preventing the destruction of the "non-right-of-way" portion of the residence and an order directing trustees to provide a full and complete accounting of trust monies and other relief.
