This post picks up where I left off yesterday, transcribing the probate court case brought by Emily Throckmorton, widow of Archibald Throckmorton, in October 1880. In today’s installment, the Probate Judge orders the Morrow County, Ohio sheriff to serve papers to the executors of Archibald Throckmorton’s estate. The papers are served and expenses tallied. More tomorrow…
