This was copied from a book on Blount Co., TN WILLS. Hope it helps you. If you will keep track of the cost of copying the information you received from copies from the Montgomery books I will gladly pay for the expense and mailing. It would be a lot easier than me trying to get hold of those books interlibrary loan.
