Subject: [OhBrown] debtors to Nicholas Devore estate c 1829

Nicholas Devore died early in 1829 in Union Twp, Brown Co OH. His probate
began about 20 April 1829, when his widow Sarah (who would die before his
estate was settled), relinquished her administration.

For those looking for ancestors in Brown Co OH c 1829 and a few years
before, the list of people who owed Nicholas money might be helpful. Many
of these individuals are not related to Nicholas Devore in any way that I
know about. One involves a court case against his relative Abner Devore
that would bear more research. Two debts were called "desperate" by the
estate administrators, David Devore and Jonas Mann. These were made out to
Thomas Hull and Jas Kerchivill. Others were listed along with the interest
they currently bore.

Because only two were listed as uncollectable, it appears these other
individuals were in Brown Co OH c 1829.

An account of notes and moneys on hand on 10 July 1829 bt David Devore and
Jonas Mann:
The following debtors owed varying amounts of money to Nicholas Devore,
from$10 to 80.50. They included William Glase, Peter Bishop, Basel Glaze,
Jacob Jolly, David Hanstabl(?), John Sreave, William McKinny, Joseph Jones,
Sam Fitch, Samuel Pickeral(?), John Shreve, Stout Drake, Enoch Drake,
Samuel Glase, William Fisher, George Crossley, John Lafaber, James Morrow,
John Glase, Benjamin Devore, Dunnies(?) Pickerl, John Sreave, Basel
McKelfrish(?), Michael Zellers, James Alexander, John Mann, Ben Devore,
Thomas Hull, Jas Kerchivill, and "on a judgment on James Moores Docket
against Abner Devore."

Of these, Jacob Jolly was likely related to Elizabeth Jolly, who married
Nicholas's grandson or step-grandson, Nicholas Sherry, a son of Daniel
Sherry and Nancy Devore;
the Drakes were likely related to Samuel Drake, who married
Nicholas's great granddaughter, Mary Miller, a daughter of James Miller
and Sarah Sherry;
Benjamin Devore may have been his son Benjamin;
Abner Devore may have been his son Abner;
John Mann was married to Abigail Devore.

Nicholas Devore has been said to be a weaver of coverlets. His estate
contained a number of coverlets but no looms or large quantities of
yarn. He appears to have been almost 100 years of age at his death, if I
have the correct birth information of 1731-32 France or Germany.
