Estate of Enoch Holsclaw

When my 4th-great-grandfather Enoch Holsclaw passed in August 1889, his estate was administered in Spencer County, Kentucky by David Black and my 3rd-great-grandfather Guilford Dudley Read.

FamilySearch has scans of the Spencer County probate files, and I was able to find more documents on Enoch Holsclaw's estate. Will Book K includes an inventory and sale of his personal property. This provides some insight into the property of a carpenter in 1880s Kentucky, and it also provides a reference to a conveyance from Enoch Holsclaw to his daughter Ellen in Deed Book J, page 291.
