Record of Wills 1845 – 1857

Jefferson County Missouri

 

Transcribed by Carole Goggin

 

The records of “died intestate” are one page long; Last Will and Testaments are two to four pages. Of the 396 pages there are 323 entries. Many of the surnames will be recognized as Jefferson County’s pioneer families. If the record is a Last Will and Testament it will be denoted by LW & T. To die intestate is to die without leaving a will.  When a name was spelled more than one way within the document, I recorded both spellings in order in which they appear.          -CG
