Annual Returns are Part of Every Estates - Breckinridge Co. KY Wills, Estates, Deeds #genealogy #kentuckypioneers


Annual Returns are Part of Every Estate
By Jeannette Holland Austin
Jeannette Holland Austin
Even if a person dies intestate, you can still find the heirs. This is done by examining the annual returns for every year until the estate is closed. The first thing which happens is that an administrator is appointed who makes an inventory of the estate, has a sale to sell off the items and subsequently files a return every year thereafter to the probate county in the county which the person died. This return lists all disbursements ranging from funeral expenses to distributions to the heirs which may occur at any time over the period the estate is active. The heirs then give receipts, called vouchers. Examine the expenditures closely. Try to ascertain the identity of the payees. One easy method is a study o f the census records for that county. Some of the heirs are husbands of daughters, so check out these names in the marriage records. 

Breckinridge County Wills, Estates, Deeds

BreckinridgeBreckinridge County was established in 1799 from a portion of Hardin County. When Abraham Lincoln was seven years old, his father, Thomas Lincoln and his family spent a few weeks in Hardinsburg and occupied a small cabin near what is now the Kentucky FFA Leadership Training Camp. The Lincolns left Kentucky by crossing the Ohio River at Cloverport on a log ferry operated by Jacob Weatherholt. The Confederate Army burned the local court being used by Union troops as barracks during the War Between the States. The third court house was burned in 1958. The county is known for its Victoria Coal Mines, named after Queen Victoria, when the Cloverport exported coal oil used to light Buckingham Palace.

Tax Defaults are Important Genealogy Resources - Boone Co. KY Wills, Estates, Deeds #genealogy #kentuckypioneers.com

Jeannette Holland Austin
Tax Defaulters are Important Genealogy Resources
By Jeannette Holland Austin

All tax digests lists persons who have defaulted on their taxes, usually enumerated as the last page of each district. The tax digests are not alphabetical, so we have to thumb through all of the pages to find anything. The default list does not necessarily reflect persons who refused to pay their property taxes. Rather, from the point of view of the genealogist it lends itself more as a report of those who have either died or removed to another county. If the date is close to a mortality census (every 10 years), you can look there. Otherwise, if the person is old enough to have died, then searching the local cemeteries in the area is indicated. People were on the go and we have to be detectives.

The Red River Gorge

Even before the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Shawnee and Yuchi were removed from Kentucky, there were European settlers. Counties were not formed until after the American Revolutionary War. Thus, in wilderness regions, the genealogist must really dig to locate old colonial forts and militia records. My personal procedure is to read every page of the tax digest in the county where my ancestor resided, recording the description of acreage, number of acres, names of neighbors, waterways, district, etc. (whatever the tax digest provides) for each year, then trace that same acreage forward. This information provides a time-line for when he resided in the county. When his name no longer appears, I search the default list. A sensible place to search next is the adjoining counties because the old parent county lines changed with the ascent of the formation of new counties and even States. For example, Hampton County Virginia went to West Virginia. The boundary lines frequently changed. Next, I look at marriages with that surname. This also gives me a time-line of the marriages of the sons and daughters as well as an idea of whether or not any members of the family were still around. If there was a ten or twenty year gap, say, that means that the older generation has either died or moved away. Of course, a thorough search of the deed records tells a better story, but there may be little or nothing there.

Boone County Wills, Inventories, Estates and Probate Records


Burlington Boone County was founded in 1798 and named after Daniel Boone. The county seat is Burlington, Kentucky. The court house records begin in 1800 and contain a complete record of old wills, estates, inventories, guardianships and other miscellaneous estate items all bundled together in the same book. In other words, when you research these books, detailed account of the estate usually follows the last will and testament up until the time that it was settled.

What is a Child in Esse? - Bracken Co. KY Wills, Estates #genealogy #kentuckypioneers

Pioneer Baby Jeannette Holland Austin
Child in Esse
By Jeannette Holland Austin

It is not uncommon for a wife to be expecting a child at the time that her husband writes his last will and testament, or dies intestate. To learn if this was the fact, one should look for the legal language of "in esse" in the will. It means "in existence". Otherwise, a complete study of the probate records is indicated. If the person died intestate (without a will), then the letters of administration, annual returns, vouchers, receipts, sales, inventories, etc. should be closely examined for any activity which resembles the birth of another heir. This includes Inferior Court cases which might be on the books as well as Minutes of the Inferior Court. There are some census records which could help. Say, the husband died in 1841. The 1850 census should reveal the name of the widow and all of her children. Then there is the court for orphans where bonds are given and guardians are appointed. Old newspapers (announcing births and deaths), cemetery plots which contain infant graves, and so on, need to be carefully considered. One of the most interesting facets of researching in Virginia is that the wills, inventories, sales and deeds are contained in one book. This is the best source for learning little tid-bits of information which help to form the puzzle.


Bracken County Wills, Estates, Deeds

Land in Bracken County Land in Bracken County Bracken County was organized in 1796 from parts of Mason and Campbell Counties. Originally, the county extended to southern Nicholas County (north of the Ohio River and west of the Licking River). It has two creeks (named for William Bracken), the Big and Little Bracken. William Bracken was a surveyor by trade and visited the area in 1773. He was later killed by Indians during the Northwest Indian War. The first county seat was Augusta, Kentucky but was moved to Woodward Crossing (Brooksville).

The Stuff That We Are Made Of - Bourbon Co. KY Wills, Estates #genealogy #kentuckypioneers

Jeannette Holland Austin
The Stuff That We Are Made Of
By Jeannette Holland Austin

The stuff that we are made of literally flows through our veins. Our DNA is a blueprint of ourselves which may be traced back in time to our ancestors. And we are a mixture of many individuals who played their roles in history. Siblings born of the same parents possess features from a variety of ancestors, and the dosage is not equal. Although it is quite interesting to discover the origin of our features, statue, and personality traits while viewing old photographs (everyone should do this), the more interesting aspect of it is the decisions made in the face of adversity. No generation escapes troubles, for all are tested. We share many common elements of those past lives, viz: war, religious beliefs, immigration, marriages, divorce, death and so on. And our trials of today run a pretty close parallel to those of the past. After it is all done, scholars write a history of those days. Owing to the difficult times of our ancestors, how did they stack up? Everyone's history is not written by the scholar. Yet, the ancestors left their story for us to tell. It is in the records (census, county court houses, pensions, bibles, cemeteries, etc.) During troubling times, the memories of their era is somewhat consoling, especially when we know that they stood among the righteous, exhibited bravery in the wars, and had a strong belief in freedom. Yes, this country was founded upon that one belief. Freedom! I found some old letters of one of my great-grandfathers and discovered that he was overtaken by a deep sadness when he left his family during the Civil War. In this way, I understood that same sadness existed during my own unhappy moments. As one traces the families further back in time, the old last wills and testaments display a virtual reality of those days. We can almost put ourselves there, in the shoes of our kin. There are many questions concerning the migrations and lifestyles of our ancestors. And the answers are there, but require a great diligence and patience. And might I say, time? During this era, genealogy research is very much improved, however, as more records are added to the internet. Virginia Pioneers is processing more old wills and estates, and I must say, the answers are in the details.

The final question is: "How will we stack up?"

Bourbon County, Kentucky Wills, Estates, Deeds



Paris, Kentucky Paris, KentuckySome of the most beautiful country in America is in Paris, Kentucky. In 1780 the district of Kentucky belonged to three counties in Virginia, viz: Fayette, Jefferson and Lincoln. Old Bourbon County was formed in 1786 from Fayette and Bourbon Counties, Virginia, and originally comprised 34 northeastern counties of Kentucky. When the new State of Kentucky was created in 1792, Bourbon became a county. The land itself was given by Fayette County, Virginia, and was named after the French House of Bourbon in honor of the assistance which France gave to America during the Revolutionary War. The courthouse was destroyed by fire in 1872 and again in1901, resulting in the loss of county records. Whiskey, made from corn had a distinctive flavor and became a popular drink termed Bourbon whiskey as opposed to rye whiskey. The whiskey barrels were marked Old Bourbon when they were shipped downriver from the local port on the Ohio River. The port from where the whiskey was shipped was called Limestone, now Maysville, and was located in Bourbon County until the borders were redrawn in 1789 and it became Mason County. The county seat is Paris, Kentucky.

    The Wilderness Home in Kentucky #genealogy #kentuckypioneers - Bell Co. KY

    The Wilderness Home in Kentucky
    By Jeannette Holland Austin

    As the cultivation of tobacco was too convenient a profit to ignore, the English were disappointed because they wanted the colonists to supply raw goods to the English markets and were looking forward to shipments of iron, timber, potash, hemp, silk and other commodities. However, the English authorities shot themselves in the foot by repressing every effort of the colonists to manufacture their own clothing and other necessities. Every coat worn by the planter, every dram of spirits consumed by him obtained by trading tobacco with Holland, diminished the value of the Virginia market for English goods. And, as the Europeans moved across the Shenandoah Valley into Kentucky, a different type of emigrant emerged on the landscape. He was the true adventurer. The energetic lifestyle of the hunter and trapper willing to form militias to protect the homestead against marauding Indians created its own forts, and economy. So it was that German immigrants and the Scotch-Irish during the early part of the 18th century took the wagon road out of Pennsylvania and crossed through the Blue Ridge Mountains. Daniel Boone Previously, head coverings were sewn with beaver fur sent to England for working up, and then returned in the shape of hats to be sold or bartered. But the Kentuckian explorer trapped beaver and other animals for fur and used it to craft necessitities required in the wilderness home. History of Virginia in the Seventeenth Century by Philip Alexander Bruce.
