Heirs are listed as found in the documents. Other heirs may be named in the document, but were not noticed. There are a lot of additional notes written in the margins and in the any blank space on each of the pages. There may be heirs not named in the order books. The original documents should be consulted.

I was hoping to find my ancestor, Daniel McAtee of Shelby Co, IN and Grundy Co, MO named. I guess I proved he doesn't belong to Abednego's family.
