Outline Plat of Widow's Portion


This week in Casefile Clues I discussed an estate partition from 1831 in Kentucky. This image shows how DeedMapper platted out the widow's portion of the farm of Thomas Sledd.

There are a few unanswered questions regarding this partition. One is why the plat in the court book is upside down. Another is what really caused the 1831 division, other than no will for the father.

In an upcoming Casefile Clues column, we'll look at ways to find out what transpired in 1831. Meanwhile those who are not subscribers to Casefile Clues can subscribe and have their issue start next week, and I'll send them this week's issue, too!
