The following are my transcriptions of some pieces of the original documents dealing with the settlement of JOHN RUMBOLD's Estate.

I do not know the citations where they are actually recorded, but the back of one of them states that the piece that I have is a true copy of the original on file. Each of these scraps have survived because they have document stamps on them and my Grandfather L. Roy Willis Sr. was a stamp collector. However, it may have been him who got rid of the rest of the document because it did not have a stamp on it. Of that I will never know the true story but will transcribe these bits as best as I can because they all contain information that helps to piece together the heirs of John Rumbold.

Stevens formerly Elizabeth Rumbold, daughter of James Rumbold deceased, and grand daughter of the said deceased, and to James and Anna Elizabeth Stevens children of Caroline Stevens formerly Caroline Rumbold daughter of James Rumbold and grand daughter of the said deceased the one sixth part of the above balance, that is to say to Elizabeth Stevensthe sum of $18.313/4 and to James and Anna Elizabeth Stevens children of Caroline Stevens the sum of $9.157/8 to each
