Re: [TN] Wells, Fayetteville, TN
In Response To: [TN] Wells, Fayetteville, TN ()

Hi Joyce,

Based on your response to me over at the "Slave Forum", you already have a copy of the "Last Will and Testament of Payton Wells" and so you're only seeking the estate inventory. Since it takes 2-3 years for an estate to go through probate, there is little chance that slaves will be included in the final inventory since Payton died in 1864. You might get lucky though. Have you looked at the following LDS films ?
