The following pages are from a lawsuit that ended up in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. The details of this lawsuit indicate that the Wellersburg Coal Company was organized in 1855, and by 1859 the firm was having trouble paying its bills. The John R. Brinham that is mentioned in the lawsuit would be the individual who built the first brick house in Wellersburg. In summary, as I understand it, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled that creditors of a corporation may enforce their claims via lawsuit against the corporation, though they themselves may be stockholders of the corporation.
