Today we are sharing the last record in the index for John Record, the document that contains the accounting of his estate Unfortunately the record that contains Benjamin B Shackford's accounting of John Shackford's estate. Unfortunately the document does not include the details of the estate settlement which are contained in Schedule A and B which do not seem to be filed with the document that refers to these two attachments. However we can tell that Benjamin's accounting is allowed. The probate of John Shackford's estate is finally completed on June 5, 1873, about six years and ten months death.
