Re: (:1847 BENTON CO HELP NEEDED :)
I would really appreciate it if you could look up the the Last Will and Testament for my GGGGrandfather. His name was William Henry Carey and he died sometime in 1847 there in Benton County, Alabama. His wife was Mary Laurendine of Mobile, Alabama and he had sons John Jefferson, William Calvin, David Allen and a daughter named Mary Elizabeth. The children ranged in age from 16 to 8 years old when he died. William Henry also had a brother named Thomas John Carey who lived in Benton County, and we have seen one census that had their father John Carey in Benton County. I did hear back from the lady who posted the Rootsweb article and she told me that she ran across the document while doing research in Calhoun in the early 1990's. She was not researching the Careys at the time so she just noted his name and the year his will was probated. Again, thank you so much, and let me know if I can get you some money for your trouble.
