1864 William Morgan Appraisment Bill
Posted by: Harold Bishop Morgan Date: November 06, 2000 at 16:40:24
  of 1225


This is the Appraisement Bill of my GG grandfather's Estate in 1864 Daviess
Co., Kentucky (Owensboro). The sum of $215.95 is not correct by the way.
Later, I will post the actual bill of sale for you to enjoy.
Lordy, these old court documents are wonderful to find and study.
