Notes / Description: 

Samuel Lowe died when only child Abner was 5 months old, leaving Abner an orphan (his mother predeceased Samuel) who was raised by his grandmother, Mrs. Anna Hawkins. When he became older, he filed this suit to determine what became of his inheritance. Samuel died owning a 153-acre farm in Monroe County on Fork Creek, & Abner believed his grandfather Abner & uncle Abraham were appointed administrators of Samuel's estate, but estate never settled & courthouse records burned in fire.
