BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

While holding in trust bonds and mortgages belonging to the Green family, Joseph Winter allegedly failed to pay back any of the funds to the Greens, and then allegedly sold some of the Greens' land in spite of the fact that he did not own it. Temperance Green and others filed suit against Winter and others to recover the funds they were owed. This case led to the case of Murray vs. Ballou, since Robert Murray was appointed to succeed Winter as the holder of the assets in trust, and Winter allegedly sold some of the Greens' land to Ballou. In the end, Winter was ordered to relinquish all the assets he held in trust for the Greens.
