SCOPE & CONTENT NOTE: This collection consists of all the paperwork produced during the course of the court case dealing with the oceanfront lots located in the Chataugua Beach and St. Augustine Beach subdivision. The plaintiffs were several owners of oceanfront lots which are located in two subdivisions, Chataugua Beach and St. Augustine Beach, both of which lie in St. Johns County, Florida. All the plaintiffs several oceanfront lots lie within Lots 7 and 10 in Section 34, Township 7 South, Range 30 East, according to the United States Survey of March 6, 1851. The plaintiffs were also seeking a declaratory judgment regarding the plaintiffs several rights to the allusion to their several lots extending eastward to those sovereign lands of the state of Florida which lie below the mean high-water line of the Atlantic Ocean. The plaintiffs were seeking to quiet and confirm to the plaintiffs their several titles in and to allusion to their several lots located in St. Johns County, and to removed the Tax Deed as a cloud on their several titles. Included are various accounts on the creation of the St. Augustine Beach and the Chataugua Beach subdivisions. The documents are arranged in chronological order, with newspaper clippings included in the last folder.
