Isaac Gillham Jr.1

b. 1783, d. 7 March 1845
ChartsDescendants of Robert Heaton of Yorkshire, The Immigrant
Father*Isaac Gillham1 b. 17 Oct 1757, d. 16 Sep 1845
Mother*Jane Kirkpatrick1 b. 1761, d. 1845
Birth*1783Isaac Gillham Jr. was born in 1783 in South Carolina.2
(Appraiser) Inventory18 December 1822Isaac Gillham Jr. and Amos Squire completed and appraised the inventory of the estate of Valentine Kinder, deceased, on 18 December 1822. The inventory, which they valued at $646.12, was approved as true and perfect by the probate court on 15 Apr 1828.3
Marriage*7 November 1823He married Rebecca Heaton, daughter of James Heaton and Barbara Kinder, on 7 November 1823 in Madison County, Illinois. Her surname was recorded as "Hayden."4
(Appraiser) Inventory29 December 1825Henry Hayes, Isaac Gillham Jr. and Thomas Gillham, appraisers for the estate of Alexander Laughlin, late of Madison County, Illinois, deceased, prepared an inventory for the estate dated 8 December 1825 and a Bill of Sale, listing the names of those purchasing items from the estate, dated 29 December 1825. Both documents were signed, certified and submitted to Hiram Arthur, Administrator, and to the probate court in Madison County, Illinois, on 10 June 1826. The Bill of Sale, totaling $397.03¾, was filed by the court on 11 June 1826 and the appraisement of the estate, valued at $580.75½, was filed by the court on 19 June 1826. Almost all of the purchases from the estate listed on the Bill of Sale were made by the widow, Barbara.5,6
(Son-in-Law) Administration20 December 1831Thomas G. Lofton and William Gillham were appointed administrators of the estate of their mother-in-law, Barbara (Kinder) Heaton Laughlin, deceased, on 20 December 1831 in Madison County. They made their sworn statement to the probate court that, in their opinion, the total value of the personal estate of which Barbara died possessed would not exceed $800 and John Gillham, Jacob Kensler and Ephraim Davidson were appointed by the judge to appraise the estate of the deceased. John Gilliam was a brother-in-law of two of Barbara's daughters, Rebecca (Hayden) Gillham and Barbara (Heaton) Gillham, Jacob Kensler was the father-in-law of Barbara's son, John Heaton, and Ephraim Davidson was the future father-in-law of Barbara's son, James Laughlin. A third son-in-law, Isaac Gillham Jr., joined Thomas G. Lofton and William Gillham in posting a bond of $1,600 with the probate court.7,8,9,10
(Administrator) 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."11,12
(Purchaser) Estate Sale11 January 1832Isaac was among the purchasers of items from the sale of the estate of his mother-in-law, Barbara Laughlin, deceased, lately of Madison County, Illinois, his name appearing several times on the Bill of Sale list dated 11 January 1832. Almost all of the purchasers were members of her immediate and extended family. Those on the list of the most interest to us for the purpose of this project were John Heaton, Valentine Heaton, Thomas G. Lofton, Isaac Gillham Jr., Fielding Jefferson Lewis, Gallatin Kinder, Samuel Kinder, Hiram Arthur, Thomas Gillham, Jacob Kensler, Isaac Braden, Ephraim Davidson and Margaret Letitia Davidson.12
(Husband) Estate Distribution6 April 1833Isaac's wife was a daughter, and one of several heirs, of Barbara Laughlin, deceased, and on 6 April 1833 Isaac received $105.50, his wife's full heir's share from the administrators of his mother-in-law's estate. The shares of the two older sons, John and Valentine Heaton, were paid by the estate administrators directly to them, the shares of the four married daughters were paid to each of their husbands, and the shares of the two minor children were paid to their half-brother, Valentine Heaton, as their guardian. On 13 February 1846 Isaac's widow, Rebecca Gillham, daughter of the deceased, provided a written statement to the probate court stating that she was one of the several heirs of Barbara Laughlin and that, to her knowledge, the several heirs of said deceased received of the administrators of her estate the sum of $105.50 each, by themselves or through their guardians.13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20
Probate6 February 1844Isaac was appointed Administrator for the estate of John Heaton on 6 February 1844 in Madison County. John's widow, Rocceana (Kensler) Heaton, signed her mark on a document relinquishing her Right of Administration and requesting Isaac Gillham in her place on the same date. John's estate was valued by the appraisers appointed by the court at $468.67 on 27 February 1844 and his widow received livestock, household and farm items valued at $167.75. The remaining items were sold to his relatives, friends and neighbors, and also some things to his widow, Rocceana, who also received $73.00 as a part of her dower and $46.05 as the widow Guardian of her husband's minor heirs. On a second document dated 25 March 1845, Rocceana signed two receipts for Calvin Kinder, successor administrator of her husband's estate. One receipt for an additional $73.00 for her dower, and the other for $146.05 for her husband's minor heirs.21,22
(Brother) Probate12 February 1845Isaac and George Rice were appointed administrators of the estate of Isaac's brother, William Gillham, on 12 February 1845 in Madison County, Illinois. Isaac would die the following month.23
Death*7 March 1845He died on or about 7 March 1845 at about age 6224
Probate*13 March 1845 and probate was granted on 13 March 1845 at Madison County, Illinois, to his widow Rebecca Gillham and Calvin Kinder as administrators of his estate. At the time of his death, Isaac had been administrating the estate of John Heaton, and Rebecca Gillham and Calvin Kinder took over as administrators to complete the probate of John Heaton's estate also.25

(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
