50+ Persons Mentioned in a Tennessee State Supreme Court Case from 1835

In early January I obtained a copy of a Tennessee State Supreme Court case in which my 2nd great grandmother's brother, William Putman was accused of fraud in the sale of a horse.  There is an amazing amount of people involved in this case.  People involved included citizens from 4 different counties of Tennessee--Bedford, Dickson, Rutherford, and Williamson counties.  If you are a researcher whose ancestors were in Tennessee, please consider at least running a search or two in this collection. It appears these are a work-in-progress.  The last update from what I can tell showed it being only 25% complete.  I look forward to the day when it's 100%

Listing of persons involved in the case of Robert Williams vs William Putman, et al. 

The case is heard by the Middle District of the Tennessee State Supreme Court in 1835 and originated in Rutherford County Tennessee on 7th of October 1829.  I ordered the file from TN State Library  & Archives via https://supreme-court-cases.tennsos.org/ and it was delivered  2nd Jan 2019, via email and contained scanned digital images in a 41 page PDF document.  The physical location of the case at TSLA is in the TN State Supreme Court Cases Collection Range: 33 Section: A  Shelf: 2  Box Number: 375 as noted by the listing at the previously mentioned webpage.  The quickest way to find it is by searching for Keyword "Putman"  in Rutherford County in the search box of the site.  I've tried to alphabetize by surname after removing duplicates and came up with 50 persons which I have listed below.
