There had been a dispute between share holders of the Indiana Company and Virginia as to who had the legal right to sell land located south of the Ohio River in what is now West Virginia. The Indiana Company's petition asserted that the Congress had jurisdiction over the land, but Virginia claimed it had jurisdiction and North Carolina supported Virginia's claim
