Notes / Description: 

The cover of this case lists it on the Chancery docket, but all the records are from the Probate court. Busbey is Puckett's administrator. Until the last few pages, when "Busby v. Puckett" appears for the first time, the case is non-adversarial. Included are petitions for payment of debt -- W. H. Bates says he is owed $2081.35 from the estate; C. H. Taylor claims a debt of $179.35. There are also several pages of legal briefs.
