Primary events

Secondary circumstances

Some aspects of Ann Butler's life. Ann's will is an interesting doc. She was a widow, her husband having died nearly 20 years previous. She left her daughter Ann Augusta CHLAMERS her silver tea and coffee service and her piano. She then noted all other plate, and household stuff to be equally divided between her 5 surviving children, which included Ann Augusta. In this she meant the actual articles, not the results of seeling them. Any items not so divided, plus any residue of her personal estate was then to be sold, with the proceeds divided between the 5. One executor died prior to Ann, so she replaced that executor with 2 of her sons.2
