I think this is quite possibly the most boring estate inventory I’ve ever read. Blah. I’m sharing it here for other researchers, but I have to admit that I was less than excited when I found this. I know very little about Jacob Pierce’s life and I was hoping that his probate records would shed some light on his life, but they didn’t.
Can anyone tell me, why does he only have “notes” listed as what the inventory of his estate is – notes from 1871 (the document was from 1877)? Is there any significance to these notes? Did he own nothing worth mentioning? Nothing?
