(Appraiser) Administration20 December 1831John Gillham, Jacob Kensler and Ephraim Davidson were appointed by the judge of the probate court of Madison County on 20 December 1831 to appraise the estate of Barbara (Kinder) Heaton Laughlin, deceased. John was a brother-in-law of two of Barbara's daughters, Rebecca (Hayden) Gillham and Barbara (Heaton) Gillham, Jacob was the father-in-law of Barbara's son, John Heaton, and Ephraim was the future father-in-law of Barbara's son, James Laughlin.3,4,5,6
(Appraiser) Inventory10 January 1832John Gillham, Jacob Kensler and Ephraim Davidson, acting as the probate court appointed appraisers of the estate of Barbara Laughlin, deceased, submitted their certified inventory list with appraised value of $560.75 to the probate court in Madison County on 10 January 1832. After items were sold and adjustments were made by her administrators, Thomas G. Lofton and Isaac Gillham Jr., the value of her estate had increased to $747.98½ and was submitted to the court on 4 April 1832 and filed by the court on 7 April 1832. Barbara's inventory analysis was confusing, both then and now, because the probates of Valentine Kinder and Alexander Laughlin, her father and husband, respectively, were at times being probated simultaneously with Barbara's. Her father's case had some legal issues which dragged things out. The paperwork of the three probates overlapped at times, and some documents were interchanged and misfiled by the court. Additionally, two probate packets were found for Barbara, causing her to be indexed twice. We found one folder with her surname spelled correctly and the other with it spelled "Langhlin."7,8
