Macker's Heirs v. Thomas

20 U.S. (7 Wheat.) 530


In real actions, the death of the ancestor without having appeared to the suit abates the suit, and it cannot be revived and prosecuted against the heirs of the original defendant.

If the heirs be made parties by order of the court in which the suit is brought, and judgment is entered against them by default for want of a plea; upon a summons and count against the original defendant, they may sue out a writ of error and reverse the judgment.
