Estates and Vouchers

Vouchers are the given by persons paid out on the estate and more importantly, the heirs. This is where to find the names of daughters as husbands received in behalf of wives. All of the vouchers should be thoroughly examined because they contain such things as who the widow (or widower) remarried, names of children and their current place of residence, location of land tracts and if the plantation was sold and who purchased. Just lots of goodies!
