CHARLES TOWN - A Florida resident claims a Jefferson County asphalt company owes money to her late father's estate.

Ida Marie Barnes of Cape Coral, Fla., filed a suit March 13 in Jefferson Circuit Court against Jefferson Asphalt Products Company on behalf of Porter Harrison Thomas, her late father.

The suit says Thomas was the founder of Jefferson Asphalt Products, and the company owed him two promissory notes worth $169,781.59. However, after his death, the company stopped making payments to the notes.

The suit says Barnes has accelerated the remaining balances due under the two promissory notes, but the company has refused payment.

Barnes, as the executrix to the estates of Porter Thomas, demands judgment in the amount of $169,781.59, plus interest, from Feb. 28, 2006, until paid.

Barnes' attorney is Michael L. Scales.
