After a week of Math Teacher Conference, I’m ready to get back into the genealogy mode.  Of course, every time I say that, something ELSE pops up, but that’s life!

Due to a lack of vital records in the early years of Russell County, I’ve been using Court Orders to help me narrow down the date of death for some of my ancestors. I thought that might be helpful to other Russell County researchers as well. I was only able to make it through the Jan – June Sessions of the 1828 Russell County Court Order this morning.

  • January Term – James Wariner administrator for William Stapp estate
  • January Term – Mary Smith executrix of William Smith
  • April Term – Estate of William Stapp (no other names)
  • April Term – James Wariner administrator of William Stapp estate
  • April Term – James Woldridge one of the executors for Richard Wooldridge
  • April Term – Smith Turner executor of Richard Turner gives bond
  • June Term – Last will and testament of Edward Long or Lang proven
  • June Term – Last will and testament of Richard Turner proven
  • June Term – Nancy Hampton widow of Henry Hampton
