The Earliest Death Administrations indexes any wills, probate or other official death records in Christian County 1864 - 1887. Since that's one of the books indexed in the "printed sources" portion of the transcribed records website, you can check whether any probate or similar legal record is to be found in Christian County records. Just look for EDA and the page number in the index. Published Sources indexes among other book EDA. The page number in EDA is not the same as the date or book and page number of the actual probate files or wills. Looking at that page in EDA will give some information about the death record. These actual references from EDA could help you explain your request to the probate court, but would not be absolutely required. If you do not find the person you are seeking in EDA, the record probably would not be a Christian County record. Sometimes, wills were probated and filed in a place other than where the individual once lived or owned property, and sometimes settlement took longer than the period between when your subject died and this index ends.
