DAVIS, Bristow

Contributed by Bill Landers. Contact him for additional information.

Bristow Davis made his will in Morgan Co. on 3 Feb 1834 and died 15 May 1836. Because these dates were near 25 Dec 1833 when my Mary DAVIS m Geo. Wash. CROOKS, it occurred to me that Bristow may have been sufficiently ill in Dec 1833 to send Job DAVIS to vouch for Mary’s age and thus permit the marriage. So, I ordered the Probate file with hope that Mary would be mentioned. But alas, Bristow failed to mention most of his children by name.Will list the names found in the record in case someone on the list will benefit.The will of 1834 specifically left everything to Polly. The children were not to share unless it pleased Polly and if it pleased, they were to share alike. He requested his property not be sold ‘unless my beloved Polly may think fit to make it her will.’

Present: James D MORISON and David DAVIS.

A Codicil in 1835 directed Polly to ‘pay grandchild, Susanna SMITH, daughter of Elizabeth SMITH and Drew SMITH, five dollars when Susanna reaches 18.’

Witnessed by J..D. MORISON and David DAVIS.

Polly DAVIS, wife, was appointed administrix. Attest Aaron WILSON,

witnesses Berriman BEACHY and Davis BUNCH

The total estate amounted to $2200.87 of which $1570 was the value of 157 acres, appraised at $10 per acre. The appraisal of live stock, tools and house hold items was made 27th day of Jun 1836 and amounted to $630.87 1/2. But unlike other probates I have transcribed, there was no sale. This may have been because Polly was to inherit everything? Knowing this, the appraisers may not have felt accuracy was important. They seemed to be well acquainted with the going rate for tools and live stock, even the present crop of wheat at $37.50. I was amused to see the entry of 16 head of geese at $8, followed by ‘part of a sack of coffee’, also $8. It may be have been near the end of the day when they made this entry: “House hold and kitchen furniture too tedious to mention…$55.12 1/2.

The appraisers were:
