A.W. Asbill, SC, Estate Bill of Sale - 1867
Posted by: Annette (ID *****8537) Date: May 06, 2004 at 19:54:04
  of 498

Sale Bill of the Personal estate of A.W. Asbill (Abner), 11th December 1867. Handwritten list on microfiche at the Edgefield County Courthouse - Archive room.

The total of the lines added up are off by a dollar or two from the total listed "in gold". Don't know if the error is in the list itself or an error on my part when transcribing.
