If a will is a legal document that states how property is disposed of , then if something is listed in a will but does not tell what is to be done with it, then there must be another legal document concerning this property.The items in question are the five cows and calves deducted from Ignatious' stock of cattle.
The only place I have seen this was in wills pertaining to female heirs.
an example comes from Goldsborough Flowers' wife Rebecca Wingate. Rebecca's grandfather made a will in which he left his wife (Ann Blount Wingate) three cows and one steer,and when she dies the three cows are to be given to son Edward. Rebecca's grandmother made a will and left all her cattle to son John (Rebecca's father)excepting three cows and calves.Ann doesn't say what is to become of the cows, but we know from her husband's will they go to son Edward.
If this is the case with Ignatious' will then it "could" mean there is a will somewhere, probably in Georgia concerning these cows and a female heir (Susan?)
The cows went to John Grantham, who had possesion of Ignatious' cattle. note: this John Gratham had a son named Ignatius Grantham.
Ignatious' will doesn't mention any debt, and there should be a legal doc. concerning these cows.
I'm looking for something and I need a fresh view about these cows, and any opinions are welcome
