Scope and Contents

Records available on microfilm only.

This series consists of miscellaneous unbound arranged estate records filed with the Clarke County Court of Ordinary (now Probate Court). These papers were submitted by administrators or executors of estates as required by law to document the settling of the estates of deceased citizens. The most commonly found documents are administrator's bonds, inventories and appraisements of estates and sale bills. Also included in some cases are: (1) guardian's bonds (2) letters of administration (3) orders of dismission of administrators (4) orders to sell lands (5) returns of widow's support (6) probated wills (no originals) (7) receipts taken by an administrator or executor when he made payments in settling an estate. The word "ward" beside an individual's name indicates that the person was a minor or an adult in need of guardianship. The records are arranged alphabetically by the surname of the deceased or individual to whom a guardianship was issued.
