Is there anyone that has Blount CO will bks that can tell me the date a will was filed?
Last wk a woman obtained a copy of the will of Jacob THOMAS at the Blount CO Lib in Maryville. The will was dated 15 Feb 1804 and she thinks it was on pgs 260 & 261 of Blount Co Wills and Deeds. She did not tell me when it was filed for probate so I cannot tell when this Jacob Thomas died. I will be very grateful for anyone that can give me the probate date.
Is there anyone that has a copy of The THOMAS Family History by Faye Thomas Davis? There is a copy in the Blount CO library in Maryville. I would like to know where it was published in 1996.
Jacob THOMAS made a will in BLount CO TN dated 15 February 1804 in which he named his wife, Margaret, sons George, Henry, JACOB, John, and Adam and a dght Margaret Numan/Niman.
