1836 TN Will of Lewis S SCRIBNER
Finally went and ordered this will, thought others might like it.I'm always interested in these documents and would love to work more on this NC line of SCRIBNER's.Seem to be three brothers, sons of Dorothy AKA Dolly:Lewis Smith, William & Pleasant.It's difficult to tell on the ages of Lewis' sons, probably Redden & John were born before 1800, but in 1810 he has only one that old and six born between 1800-10.I can't decide how old Redden is and lean towards 1800, seeing as he flip flops so much, maybe he didn't care how old he was!
