Note: Jonathan Martin Junior, 1877. This transcription comes from the LDS Family Centre microfilm, 2057081. There were two pages that were almost identical except for the amount entered for the value of the estate. Both of the documents were dated the same day so it's interesting to me why there would have been two pages with two different amounts. As before, the pages were pre-printed forms and those parts that were filled in by hand have been underlined.
