In case anyone's interested, the Robert J. McCarll who appears in this thread was the son of Robert McCarll of Brooklyn, New York whose will was probated in 1886 (died 1884 or 1885).Robert's heirs were Robert J. of Merrimack, Wisc., and surviving children of his two daughters, Anna McCarll Ennis (William, Joseph and Elizabeth Ennis, of Jersey City, NJ) and Emma J. McCarll Cupiss (Robert and Frank Cupiss, of Merrimack, Wisc.).
One of my relatives, George Hettrick was the executor of Robert's will.Robert McCarll's second wife, Catharine Sheppard McCarll survived her husband, but only by a short time; the name of his first wife is unknown.Has research turned up the mother of Robert J. McCarll of Merrimack?
I've created a PDF of the estates of Robert and Catharine McCarll of Brooklyn and would be happy to share.
