Three items below lead to questions. It appears that Julius died intestate, and Samuel W. Sharp, "a son and heir" was administrator.The administration was closed 9 Feb 1854.
The questions are (1) What became of the land owned by Julius at the time of his death in 1846 (both the grant and any land acquired by deed)? (2) The names and residences of the heirs who conveyed their respective interests in that land by any sort of conveyance?
Perhaps someone already has researched this, or frequents the Recorder's Office and could tell me.
Any help would be appreciated.
