Ebenezer Sprout1

(Inventory Preparer) Administration15 November 1710Francis Barker and Ebenezer Sprout prepared the inventory of the estate of Jabez Pratt before Administration on the estate was opened on 15 November 1710 in Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England), Jonathan Pratt and Joseph Stockbridge were appointed the administrators. The Letters of Administration document stated that Jabez, late of Duxbury, had died intestate and that the administrators were to prepare and provide an inventory of his estate to the Probate Court before 22 December. The inventory, valued at about £54.65s.23p had already been prepared, however, by Francis Barker and Ebenezer Sprout on the last day of October 1710, two weeks before administration was opened. The inventory identified books, wearing apparel, a horse, saddle and bridle, a pair of oxen, 3 cows, a swine, a yoke and chains and other tools for husbandry, hay and fodder, corn, salt, pewter, wooden vessels, 8 pounds of butter, iron vessels for housekeeping, chairs, a table, stools and lumber, a small pot, a debt from Joseph Stockbridge, a parcel of apple trees and a mention of 2 items at a Taunton estate. An additional note dated 15 Nov 1710, the same date the administrators were appointed, stated that Elizabeth Pratt, relict widow of the deceased, had refused to administer the estate. No mention of his and Elizabeth's children, all minors, was found in the probate documents.2

Amos Squire1

b. 16 August 1774, d. 12 August 1825
Birth*16 August 1774Amos Squire was born on 16 August 1774.1
Marriage*3 August 1808He married Temperance Ohara on 3 August 1808 at Fort Chartres, St. Clair County, Illinois. There is confusion regarding Temperance's maiden name. Their marriage records all state it was "Ohara" and her memorial reported it as "Worley". Additionally, her memorial reported the year of their marriage as 1805 and the Illinois marriage records give the year as 1808. While it's possible Amos married two different women named Temperance within three years of each other, it doesn't seem likely.2,3,1
(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 1828.4
