Yes, my intention is to call the courthouse and find this out.
Monroe County was created in 1822.
The family they lived next door to is the son of slave owner William Franklin Darden and he didn't die until long after the end of slavery....that's pretty significant I would think. I have the will of William F's father William (1841) and I'm needing to locate information mentioning the names of these slaves.
FHL Monroe County Probate Records (same records available at Ga Archives):
Annual Returns 1824-1945..... Executors of a will are not required to do this are they? I've asked this and haven't found the answer.
Court of Ordinary Day Books (estates, sales, bonds, receipts, ect.) 1861-1872....too late (as I'm dealing with earlier dates)
Inventories and Appraisements of Estates 1852-1954 .....again too late
Probate Records 1831-1956 is only an index to temporary letters of administration......these men had wills therefore this doesn't apply
