Estate papers for Amos Watson Satcher Box no. 52, pkg no 2183 Film # 162264 December 1842, administered by sons Ira H. Satcher and Henry M. Satcher (Hannah Satcher relinquised right of administration to sons Ira and Henry)
Nothing listed for two administrators.A note in the papers says there were 8 children.Neither Hannah nor Ellis are listed as receiving distributive shares.Ellis did participate in the estate sale.This raises two possibilities: 1)Hannah was dead at the time of the estate admin. and Ellis did not receive distribution as he may have owed the estate
