I am the County Coordinator for Jennings County INGenWeb and am transcribing wills to put on the Jennings site. I am presently working on the will of Charles Rust who died between October and December of 1860 in Jennings County. I like to gather information and possible contacts for people who may be researching their families in case someone contacts me. Can anyone help with this family? I have some names I am having trouble reading? Names in the will that are clear are.
Charles Rust-the author of the will Hannah Rust-wife Children listed Susan Henry John-heirs listed M?, Mary Catherine,Martha Ann, Ro? Abram Hannah(Rust)Bailey Alanson A. Francis M. George S. Mary Ann Pender? Martha Jane-probably deceased as he lists her husband Sylvester Deputy as his heir.
From census records it appears Charles was born in Maryland about 1795. I am also distantly related to this family by marriage.
