Does anyone have a photocopy of the will or inventory of James Arnett, husband of Susanna McGehee? I have seen a reference made, that the will was probated in 1781, and that his inventory was listed in the same year.
James Arnett was my 4th great grandfather. One of his younger sons, John Arnett, moved to Fayette County, Kentucky, with his father's widow, Susanna McGehee Arnett, and, in 1795, purchased land in Madison County, Kentucky. Later, in about 1814, he had moved to Madison County, Missouri, where he died in 1840. Since there has been some confusion and mix ups as to the real parentage and birth place of this John Arnett, I and some cousins have been making an effort to obtain as much actual documentation as possible.
