Phillip G. Hollis, Camden, Tennessee, for the appellees, Delmus L. Thomas, and Emily Faye Thomas.

Judge(s): STAFFORD

This appeal concerns the proper ownership of a piece of farm property in which the deed recites ownership as one-half to parents and one-fourth each to their two sons. The trial court eventually ruled that the property in dispute was solely owned by parents based on the complaining son’s nonpayment of taxes and awarded full ownership of the property to the parents under the theories of title by prescription and unjust enrichment. We reverse and remand.
