Leonard Herrick of Duanesburg, heirs
Posted by: Robert Fairchild (ID *****1809) Date: January 24, 2008 at 14:52:43
  of 1814

Heirs of Leonard Herrick of Duanesburgh, Schenectady County, NY who died 21 June 1872

According to Probate documents Leonard died intestate (without a Will). His estate would therefore be divided according to New York State law. This apparently is 1/3 to the widow, the remainder divided among the children.

From the Petition in Probate documents:

Caroline Herrick his widow of Duanesburgh Schdy Co NY

Calvin J. Herrick, a son of Duanesburgh Schdy Co NY

Jane Lester wife of John Lester daughter of Duanesburg Schdy Co NY

Martha Herrick daughter Duanesburg Schdy Co NY

Nelson Herrick son of Hope Hamilton Co NY

Isabella Parks wife of Isaac Parks daughter of Hope Hamilton Co NY

Maria H.(?) King wife of Patrick King daughter of Florida Montgomery Co, NY

Miranda Sweet wife of Waterman Sweet daughter of Florida Montgomery Co NY

Johanna(sic?) Cole wife of Peleg Cole daughter of Esperance Schoharie Co NY

John(sic Jonathan) Herrick son of Esperance Schoharie Co NY

Richard T. Herrick son of Florida Montgomery Co, NY

Sarah A. Stewart wife of (smudged illegible) of Schenectady City, Schen Co, NY

James H. Herrick son of Fredericksburgh Clarkson Co Iowa

On settlement document dated January 24, 1874

Caroline Herrick                     $295.28
Nelson Herrick                            $49.21
James H. Herrick                     $49.21
Julia Slawson                            $49.21
Maria A. King                            $49.21
Isabel Parkes (sic)                     $49.21
Miranda Sweet                            $49.21
Sarah Jane Lester                     $49.21
Jonathan Herrick                     $49.21
Calvin Herrick                            $49.21
Joana(sic) Cole                            $49.21
Martha Brownell                            $49.21
Richard T. Herrick                     $49.21

It is not clear why there is Sarah A. Stewart listed only in the petition and Julia Slawson listed only in the settlement.

Some of the children are with Sarah Estes his first wife.
Sarah (wife of John Lester) , Jonathan, Joanna, Calvin, and Martha are with Caroline Mott his second wife. Caroline was a sister of my great great grandmother Joannah Mott.
