Robert Brooks (1780 – 1847): Additions to Previous Posting

Tippecanoe County, Indiana, Probate Court Order Bk. 5, p. 81

Or, Subtitled: “The sale bill belonging to this Estate on making final record could not be found supposed never to have been filed”

Another previous posting to which I’ve added substantial information I found during my recent research trip to the Family History Library in Salt Lake City: this posting I made in April 2002 about Robert Brooks, son of Thomas Brooks and Margaret Beaumont/Beamon. I have now added to the previous posting some information I found about Robert in Warder W. Stevens’s Centennial History of Washington County, Indiana; information about his presence in (or absene from) the deed records of Indiana counties in which he lived or had land, which included Washington, Lawrence, Clinton, and Tippecanoe Counties; and Robert’s probate record in Tippecanoe County’s probate court order book, along with the final settlement of his estate from the county’s final settlement books.
