Mary ______1

Marriage*She married Jacob Kensler.1
(Widow) EstateAugust 1828Mary was among those relatives, friends and neighbors who purchased items from the estate of Jacob Kensler of Madison County, Illinois, in August 1828.2
(Widow) Probate28 July 1832Mary and Thomas Gillham were appointed Administratrix and Administrator for the probate of the estate of Jacob Kensler on 28 July 1832 in Madison County, Illinois.

David Prickett, Judge of Probate for Madison County, Illinois, wrote that whereas Jacob Kensler died intestate on or about the 3rd day of July AD 1832 having at his decease personal property in Illinois which may be lost, destroyed or diminished if speedy care be not taken of the same to the end therefore that the said property may be collected and preserved for those who shall appear to have a legal right or interest therein. He then appointed Mary Kensler and Thomas Gillham Administratrix and Administrator of all and singular the goods and chattels, rights and credits, which were of the said Jacob Kensler at the time of his decease with full power and authority to secure and collect the said property and debts wheresoever the same may be found in Illinois and in general to do and perform all other acts which now are or hereafter may be required of them by law.

James Botkin, after being duly sworn and deposed that same day, testified that the personal estate of which Jacob Kensler died possessed did not exceed in value the sum of $600, to the best of his knowledge and belief.

Also on 28 July 1832, Mary Kensler, James Botkin, John Heaton and Thomas Gillham agreed to be held and firmly bound unto the people of the state of Illinois in the penal sum of $1,200 current money of the United States which payment, well and truly to be made and performed, they and each of them did bind themselves, their heirs, executors, administrators and assigns, jointly, severally and firmly. The judge went on to write that the condition of the above obligation was such that if the said Mary Kensler and Thomas Gillham, Administratrix and Administrator of all and singular the good and chattels, rights and credits of Jacob Kensler, deceased, do make or cause to be made a true and perfect inventory of all and singular the goods and chattels of the said deceased which have or shall come to the hands, possession or knowledge of them, the said Mary Kensler and Thomas Gillham as such Administratrix and Administrator, or to the hands of any person or persons for them. And the same so made, did exhibit or cause to be exhibited in the court of Probate for the said county of Madison, agreeably to law, and such goods and chattels, rights and credits, to well and truly administer according to law and all of the rest of the said goods and chattels, rights and credits which shall be found remaining upon the account of the said Administratrix and Administrator, the same being first examined and allowed by the Court of Probate, shall deliver and pay unto such person or persons respectively, as may be legally entitled thereto and further to make a just and true account of all their actings and doings therein when thereunto required by said court. And if it shall hereafter appear that any last will and testament was made by the deceased and the same be proved in court, and letters testamentary or of administration be obtained thereon, and the said Mary Kensler and Thomas Gillham to, in such case on being required thereto, render and deliver up the letters of administration granted to them as aforesaid and shall in the general do and perform all other acts which may at any time be required of them by law, then this obligation to be void, otherwise to remain in full force and virtue. The document was signed and sealed by Mary Kensler who made her mark, Thomas Gillham, James Botkin and John Heaton.

In a third document, also dated July 28, 1832 and signed by Mary Kensler and Thomas Gillham, they solemnly swore they would well and truly administer all and singular the goods and chattels, rights, credits and effects of Jacob Kessler, deceased, and pay all just claims and charges against his estate so far as his goods, chattels and effects shall extend and the law charge them, and that they would do and perform all other acts required of them by law to the best of their knowledge and abilities.1,3,4

Research Notes* What was Rosey's surname?... Her gravestone identified her only as "Rosey, wife of John Leib". Her Find A Grave memorial reported her maiden name as "Funk", but didn't identify her parents. Other researchers who have posted their trees on Ancestry have identified her as "Rosanna Isley", a daughter of Christian Isley. All of these trees we've seen appear to us to have originated, as copies, from the same first tree, and to our dismay, none have contained sources in order to verify relationships. So, who was Rosey, really?...1
Marriage*She married John Leib, son of John Leib and Catherine Saddler.1,2
(Wife) Death12 February 1845Rosey became a widow when John Leib died on 12 February 1845 at age 59.2
