Estate of Elbert J Rachels

Transcription from the Rusk Co. courthouse of the administration of the estate of Elbert J. Rachels. It contains names of many citizens in Rusk County in 1858, 1859 and 1860. Elbert is the son of John C. and Kerenhappuch (Caron) Smith Rachels from Jasper and Hancock counties Georgia. He is the brother of Missouri Rachels Smith (William M.) and Leacy Rachels Blount (Joab) who are found on the Rusk County Texas census 1860 and 1870 and also John Pinckney Rachels. It states W. F. Garrett is his brother-in-law. Elbert died in Rusk Co. it appears in late 1858. He seems to be a carpenter, as there were many woodworking tools sold at the auction of his estate as well as farm tools, and household items including a "looking glass", spectacles and molasses stand. It is interesting to see the medicines administered during his illness, quinine, colomel and laudanum. Among the names found in this transcription are Garrett, Blount, Smith, Rachels, Dickson, Watson Cunyers, Spinks, McHaney, Hale, Pegues, Watson, Whetstone and others. I hope others looking for family clues might find a piece of their family here.
