Estate Index Entry for Anna Harper

The obituary for Anna Harper was mentioned in an earlier blog post. Her sister married my uncle in Ireland and I am hoping that something on her helps my own Irish research.

The estate index for Hancock County, Illinois, indicates there is a probate for Anna and that Jane Neil[sic] was the administrator of the estate. There is no indication in the index of a will, which is good. Anna Harper's obituary indicates she had no surviving children, so it is hoped this estate settlement mentions relatives, hopefully some in Ireland.

  1. Turns out this index entry wasn't quite correct--we'll have an update on it when the commentary appears in the newsletter.
