Occupation*Samuel Kennedy of Killeshandra, County Cavan, was an apothecary (or pharmacist.)1

The deed began by outlining the Hinds family's history with the lands, reciting first that Walter Hinds, formerly of Corrakane in the county of Cavan, was seized in fee of and in the lands of Gortnatrieve and Behy previous to the year 1770, and that, being so seized, had conveyed the lands to his son Thomas Hinds as a child's portion in the marriage settlement agreement he made in August 1770 with Alexander Slator of Whitehill, County Longford, father of Thomas' wife Anne (Slator) Hinds. And reciting that, as a part of that agreement, after the death of Thomas, his widow Anne was to receive a jointure of £50 a year payable out of the lands. The agreement also directed that, after the death of Thomas, the lands should descend to his male issue and that, after the death of his widow Anne, her jointure should revert to the couple's male issue. The agreement also permitted Thomas, at any time he thought proper, to raise the sum of £1000 as a portion for each of his younger children, whether males or females.

The 1821 deed then recited that the marriage between Thomas Hinds and Anne Slator was duly had and solemnized and that Thomas entered into possession of the lands and remained seized thereof until the time of his death. It recited that he died in 1794 leaving Anne Hinds otherwise Slator his widow, also since deceased, and seven children of the marriage, namely Walter Hinds, his eldest son and heir at law, Alexander Hinds, his second son since deceased, Thomas Hinds, his third son since deceased, Isaac Hinds, Martha Warner, now the wife of George Warner, Elizabeth Kennedy and Mary Hinds. It recited that previous to his death, Thomas Hinds duly made and published his last will and testament whereby he left to his eldest son Walter the lands of Gortnatrieve and Behy, and to each of his six younger children the sum of £1000. His will had appointed his wife Anne Hinds, his son-in-law George Warner, and his second son Alexander Hinds his executors.

The 1821 deed next recited that Thomas Hinds the younger was also dead, having first duly made his will whereof he appointed his wife Anne McCluskey his executrix, and that his second son Alexander Hinds was also dead but, previous to his death, had duly made and published his last will and testament by which he appointed his mother, Anne Hinds the elder, his sole executrix, and that Anne Hinds the elder was also deceased and that she had by her last will appointed her son Isaac Hinds her sole executor. The death of Mary Hinds, another of the children of Thomas and Anne Hinds the elder, was also recited, with the statement that her brother Isaac had obtained letters of administration for all of her properties.

The 1821 deed went on to recite that Walter Hinds, upon the death of his father Thomas, entered into possession of the lands and premises of Gortnatrieve and Behy and that by deeds of lease and release, followed by a deed of common recovery, both in 1795, had become seized in his demesne, as of fee, of and in the lands and premises of Gortnatrieve and Behy. And that being so thereof seized, he duly made and published his last will and testament whereby he gave and bequeathed to his wife Anne Hinds and his brother-in-law George Warner, as trustees, the said towns and lands of Gortnatrieve and Behy. To hold the same unto the said George Warner and Anne Hinds and the survivor of them and the heirs of such survivor forever subject to his just debts and chargeables as therein mentioned upon trust to levy and pay out of said lands unto his widow Anne Hinds a sum of £50 and also one annuity of £100 in lieu of all dower and the will gave his son George Hinds the sum of £1500 payable as therein mentioned and to any other child he might have by his wife Anne the sum of £1000 provided however that if he should have such other child, his son George should only be paid a sum of £1000 instead of the legacy of £1500 and subject to such annuity and legacies the will directed his trustees should stand seized and possessed of such lands for and to the use of his eldest son Walter Hinds Esq., party to the indenture of release first herein mentioned, his heirs and assigns forever, and of his said will he appointed his wife Anne (Hinds) Hinds and George Warner executors and died leaving his widow Anne and three children, namely Walter Hinds Esq., his eldest son and heir at law, George Hinds, and Martha Hinds. And then also reciting the death of Martha Hinds intestate and unmarried and that Walter Hinds, her brother, had obtained letters of administration of her goods and chattels, and also reciting that the said George Warner in right of his wife Martha Warner, otherwise Hinds, the said Isaac Hinds in his own right, and also as executor of the said Alexander Hinds, and also as administrator of the said Mary Hinds, the said Anne McCluskey and executrix of Thomas Hinds Junior, and the said Samuel Kennedy and Elizabeth Kennedy his wife , parties to the said first mentioned indenture of release were under the marriage articles of the first day of August 1770 and the will of the said Thomas Hinds, entitled to what remained of the said sum of £1000, and which then amounted to a sum of £769,12s,6p, and that the said George Hinds was then entitled to the sum of £1500 for principal and interest on the sum of £1000 bequeathed to him by his father the said Walter Hinds, and that there was nothing due to Walter Hinds the younger as administrator of his sister Martha Hinds, of her legacy of £1000.

Jacob Kensler1

d. 3 July 1832
Marriage*13 September 1810He married Mary Kinser on 13 September 1810 in Wythe County, Virginia.2,3
(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.4,5,6,7
(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."8,9
(Purchaser) Estate Sale11 January 1832Jacob was among the purchasers of items from the sale of the estate of Barbara Laughlin, deceased, lately of Madison County, Illinois, his name appearing 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.9
Death*3 July 1832He died intestate on or about 3 July 1832.10,11
Probate*28 July 1832His estate was opened for probate on 28 July 1832 at Madison County, Illinois, with the appointment of his widow Mary Kensler and Thomas Gillham as Administratrix and Administrator, respectively. 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 Kensler, 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.10,12,13

Two of their children resided with the couple in 1870. Catherine was 20 and John was 18 and had attended school within the year. A 22-year-old male laborer also resided in the Spence household in 1870.15
Census US 1880*12 June 1880Rocceana and James Hamilton Spence appeared on the 1880 census taken on 11 and 12 June 1880 in Nameoki, Madison County, Illinois. James was enumerated as "Hamilton J. Spence", 54 years of age and a farmer, and Roxana was 68 years of age and keeping house. Residing with the couple in 1880 were three children. The two youngest children were identified as the couple's grandsons. Henry Deer was 8 years old and his brother Osie Deer was 6. Their mother had been born in Illinois and we believe was Roxana's daughter, Matilda Heaton. The boys' father had been born in Germany. The third and oldest child residing in the Spence household in 1880 was a 14-year-old girl named Augusta Taulmann, who was identified as "adopted". She had been born in Illinois and there was no record of where either of her parents had been born or who they were. All three of the children had attended school within the census year. Two men described as laborers also resided with the Spence family in 1880. John Koerner was 60 years of age, born in Kentucky and his relationship to the family was recorded as "servant", and Colin H. McLean was 21, born in Illinois and had no relationship to the family other than as a laborer.16
Death*21 February 1886She died on 21 February 1886 at age 745
Burial* and was buried in Lot 417 of Sunset Hill Cemetery, Warrensburg, Johnson County, Missouri.5

Mark Kerr of Tokay Lodge1

(Brother-in-Law) Will27 January 1825Mark's brother-in-law, Robert Bell Booth, prepared his will dated 27 January 1825 in County Cavan, naming his six children and clarifying the order of their births: Mary (Bell Booth) Baker, wife of Robert Baker, Andrew Bell Booth, Reverend Richard Bell Booth, George Thomas Bell Booth, Jane Amelia (Bell Booth) Carmichael, wife of John Carmichael, Letitia Bell Booth and Margaret Bell Booth. He appointed Andrew Bell of Creevy and Mark Kerr of Tokay Lodge his trustees, and named his three sons, Andrew Bell Booth, Reverend Richard Bell Booth, George Thomas Bell Booth as his executors.

The Registry's copy of Robert's will was prepared without paragraphs and with little punctuation, so we have taken the liberty of separating the thoughts where we thought appropriate for ease of reading. Our transcription of the registry's copy follows:

In the name of God Amen, I Robert Bell Booth of Drumcarban in the County of Cavan, Esquire, being of sound and disposing mind, memory and understanding, do make, publish and declare this my last Will and Testament, revoking all former wills and testimonies in writing or otherwise. Imploring the Almighty through the merits and blood of Christ my Savior and Redeemer to receive my Soul into the Eternal Bliss and Glory, I direct my remains to be buried in my family burial ground in the Churchyard of Ballimaun in decent and becoming manner, trusting that my beloved sons, my executors, will conduct and commit my body to the earth. And as to such property as I am possessed of, I dispose of as follows:

I do hereby will, devise and bequeath all my real and freehold estates of and in the towns and lands of Bellsgrove, otherwise Aghacreevy, Corlislea, Drumcarban, Derrylane and Kevit, situate in the county of Cavan, and the lands of Mullaghmeen, situate in Westmeath, unto Andrew Bell of Creevy in the county of Longford and Mark Kerr of Tokay Lodge in the county of Dublin, Esquire, as trustees, and to the survivors of them, and to the heirs and assigns of such survivors, upon the trusts, and to and for the several uses, interests and purposes hereinafter expressed and declared, for and concerning the same, and to no other use, interest or purpose whatsoever.

And my will is that as to, for and concerning the lands of Bellsgrove, otherwise Aghacreevy, and the lands of Mullaghmeen in trust, to permit and suffer my eldest son Andrew, immediately after my decease, to enter into and have, hold, use and enjoy the same as his Estate for and during the term of his natural life, subject however to the payment of and chargeable with the debt of £300 sterling which he and I owe to Robert Parkes, together with the interest thereof, from my decease until paid, and also subject to the chief or ground rents thereof, with remainder of and in said lands and premises to the first and other sons, in seniority of age and priority of birth, and the lives male of such child or children of the said Andrew, lawfully to be begotten of the body of any wife he may hereafter marry, such marriage however to be by and with the consent of and approbation of my said trustees as hereinafter mentioned. The elder of such sons to always be preferred to the younger. And in case the said Andrew shall marry with the approbation of my trustees, or the survivors of them, and not otherwise, I do hereby authorize them and him to provide a competent jointure for such wife, chargeable on said lands. And should he hereafter have lawful issue more than one, my will is that the said Andrew shall have power, and I do hereby invest him with full power, to charge and encumber said lands for younger children with any sum reasonable and under the direction of my said trustees, or the survivor of them, such sum for younger children or female child not to exceed £2,000 sterling. And in case the said Andrew shall not have issue male lawfully begotten, or that having issue male and that he or they, or any of them, shall not attain the age of 21 years, then and in case such event or events shall happen, my will is that my said trustees, and the survivor of them, and the heirs and assigns of such survivors, shall permit and suffer my second son, the Reverend Richard Bell Booth, in case he should survive the said Andrew or his issue male lawfully to be begotten, to have, hold and enjoy the said lands of Bellsgrove, otherwise Aghacreevy, and Mullaghmeen, subject however to such jointure for any wife the said Andrew may marry and provision for the younger children or female issue of said Andrew of such marriage, should there be any, as shall or may on such marriage be agreed on. And also subject to such chief rents as payable thereout. And in case the said Andrew and Richard should both happen to die without lawful issue male, or that having lawful issue male and that he or they should die and not attain the age of 21 years, then upon trust to permit and suffer my youngest son George Thomas Bell Booth and his issue male to have, hold and enjoy said lands of Bellsgrove, otherwise Aghacreevy, and Mullaghmeen as aforesaid. And upon this further trust, that if all my said three sons shall happen to die without issue male, lawfully begotten, in such event the said lands of Bellsgrove and Mullaghmeen to go and descend to the heirs male of the Bell line of my family.

And as, to, for and concerning the lands of Corlislea, upon trust, that my said trustees shall immediately after my decease permit and suffer my second son the Reverend Richard Bell Booth to enter into and upon, and have, hold and enjoy the said lands of Corlislea as his Estate for and during the term of his natural life, subject however to the payment of, and chargeable with, the sum of £1,500 sterling with interest from my decease until paid, as hereafter mentioned, with remainder of and in said lands and premises to the first and other sons in seniority of age and priority of birth and the heirs male of such child or children of said Richard, lawfully to be begotten upon the body of any wife he may hereafter marry, such marriage however to be by and with the consent and approbation of my said trustees as hereafter mentioned. The elder of such sons and the issue male always to be preferred to the younger. And in case the said Richard shall marry with the approbation of my said trustees, or the survivor of them, and not otherwise, I do hereby authorize them and him to provide a competent jointure for such wife chargeable on said lands of Corlislea. And should he thereafter have lawful issue more than one or if only one, a daughter, my will is that the said Richard shall have the power, and I do hereby invest him with the power, to charge and encumber said lands for younger children with any sum reasonable, and under the direction of my said trustees or the survivor of them. Such sum for younger children or female child not to exceed the sum of £2,000 sterling. And in case the said Richard shall not have issue male lawfully begotten or that having issue male and that he or they or any of them shall not attain the age of 21 years then, and in such event or events, my will is that my said trustees shall, or the survivor, or the heirs and assigns of such survivor, may permit and suffer my sons Andrew and George Thomas, jointly if they both live, or the survivor if either should die in the meantime, and the issue male of such survivor, to have, hold and enjoy the lands of Corlislea, subject however first to the said sum of £1,500 sterling herein before and after mentioned and for such jointure for any wife the said Richard may marry and provision for the female issue or younger children of said Richard, should there be any, as shall or may on such marriage be agreed upon.

And as, to, for and concerning the lands of Drumcarban, Derrylane and Kevit, upon trust, that my said trustees shall immediately after my decease permit and suffer my third son, George Thomas Bell Booth, to enter into and upon and to have, hold and enjoy the said lands of Drumcarban, Derrylane and Kevit as his Estate for and during the term of his natural life, subject however to the payment of and chargeable with the sum of £500 sterling with interest from my decease until paid, as hereafter mentioned, with remainder to the first and other sons in seniority of age and priority of birth and the sons male of such child or children of said George Thomas Bell Booth lawfully to be begotten on the body of any wife he may hereafter marry, such marriage however to be by and with the consent and approbation of my said trustees, as here after mentioned. The eldest of such sons and their issue male always to be preferred to the younger. And in case the said George Thomas shall marry with approbation of my trustees or the survivor of them, and not otherwise, I do hereby authorize him and them to provide a competent jointure for such wife chargeable on the lands and should he thereafter have lawful issue more than one, or if only one, a daughter, my will is that the said George Thomas shall have power, and I do hereby invest him with power, to charge and encumber said lands for younger children with any sum reasonable and under the direction of my said trustees or the survivor of them, such sum for younger children or child not to exceed the sum of £1,500. And in case the said George Thomas shall not have issue male lawfully begotten or that having issue male and that he or they shall die and not attain the age of 21 years, then and in case such event or events shall happen, my will is that my said trustees and the survivor of them and the heirs and assigns of such survivor shall permit and suffer my sons Andrew and Richard jointly, should they both live, or the survivor, and should either die in the lifetime of said George and the issue male of such survivor to have, hold and enjoy the said lands of Drumcarban, Derrylane and Kevit, subject however first to the said sum of £500 herein and after mentioned, and such jointure for any wife the said George Thomas may marry and provision for the female issue or younger children of said George Thomas, should there be any, as shall on such marriage be agreed upon. And also subject to the head rent payable out of said lands of Kevit.

And it is my will and desire, and I do empower each of my three sons, Andrew, Richard and George Thomas, respectively, when in possession of the premises to make leases and grant all or any part of the premises they are respectively entitled to under this my will for any term not exceeding one life or 31 years when in possession not in reversion without fraud or fine, and at the best improved yearly rent that can be had for same from solvent tenants, and so as every such lease contains covenants against waste and that the tenant do execute a counterpart thereof.

I have herein before mentioned the sum of £1,500 as charged on the lands of Corlislea and the sum of £500 as a charge on Drumcarban, Derrylane and Kevit. I do now declare and my will is that said respective sums do stand charged on said lands, respectively, and be payable with interest from my death as aforesaid, and that said sums together with the sum of £2,000 sterling shall be equally divided by my trustees between my two daughters, Letitia and Margaret Bell Booth, so that the fortune or portion of each shall be £1,000 with interest payable to each on their respective marriages. I do however declare it is my will that in the meantime they, or either of them, shall only receive the interest at the rate of 6 percent per annum by half-yearly payments on the first of every six months after my decease, and in case either or both of my said daughters should happen to die before marriage, or be married without the consent and approbation of my said trustees, or the survivor of them, or the heirs or assigns of such survivor, and also the consent and approbation of the said Reverend Richard Bell Booth then, and either of those events so happening, the fortune or portion and all arrears of interest thereon of such, or either or both so remaining unmarried, or offending by marriage against the consent and approbation aforesaid, shall go to, and be ratably divided by my said trustees, and go between my said three sons, Andrew, Richard and George Thomas, or the survivors or survivor of them, and share and share alike. And such of my daughters so offending herein shall only have and receive a sum of £50 sterling instead of £1,000 as aforesaid.

Robert Baker is indebted to me by bond and warrant in the sum of £96 or thereabouts together with interest, and the same is secured by a deed between him and James Smyth of Cavan, Esquire, whereby an insurance is to be kept up that on the death of said Robert Baker said debt with his other debts will be paid. I bequeath said debt and all advantage therefrom to Mary, second daughter of said Robert Baker.

I order and direct, and I do hereby will and bequeath, the furniture of and belonging to two of my best chambers be reserved and handed over to my daughters, Letitia and Margaret, and it is my wish they should reside with my son George after closing their education and until their marriage, respectively, on an understanding to make some renumeration.

I do hereby devise and bequeath the remainder of my household furniture at Drumcarban and the farming utensils or implements of husbandry to my son George Thomas Bell Booth.

I do hereby order and direct that my executors shall, with all convenient speed after my decease, ascertain and collect as well, the debts due to me as those due by me. And for that purpose, immediately after my decease, to sell, dispose of or value my goods, chattels and personal property not herein before bequeathed or disposed of and, after payment of my debts, funeral expenses and £5 each to Jane McCabe and James Quin, should they be in my service at my decease, that the residue of such personal property and all other property not herein disposed of, be equally divided, share and share alike, between by beloved, dutiful and much respected children, Mary, wife of Robert Baker, Andrew, Richard, George Thomas, Jane Amelia, wife of John Carmichael, Letitia and Margaret Bell Booth and that same be paid them each, respectively, notwithstanding their coverture.

I do now nominate, constitute and appoint my sons Andrew, Richard and George Thomas Bell Booth executors of this my last will and testament and with the affection of a fond parent, I consign them to act in all things under this my will and more especially in forming any connection by marriage by, with, and under the consent and approbation of my good and faith worthy trustees who are uncles to each of them, respectively.

There is a bond debt due to me by Arthur Moneypenny, Esquire, amounting to £50 with interest. I hereby bequeath this sum to Mr. Moneypenny and I direct my executors to acquit and release the last-mentioned debt.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto affixed my name and seal this 27th day of January 1825.                    Signed… Robert B. Booth


The will was signed in the presence of three witnesses, William Carmichael, William Harris and Andrew Carmichael.

A copy transcribed from a copy of the original Will and Testament of Robert Bell Booth, Esquire, was taken by the Reverend Richard Bell Booth and compared in the presence of Andrew Bell Booth of Creevy who found it to be correct, signing his name as Andrew B. Booth, in agreement, on 31 December 1830 at Drumcarban.1
Relationship Note*1825In the 1825 will of Robert Bell Booth of Drumcarban, County Cavan, Mark Kerr of Tokay Lodge was identified as an uncle of Robert's children which, if a literal description, would mean Mark was the husband of a sister of either Robert or his deceased wife, Jane Amelia Hinds, the mother of his children. We've not yet been able to determine the source of Mark's actual relationship to the family.1
