Recently I purchased several rolls of microfilm and am able to read them from home. The microfilm that I am reading now is for Estate Inventories from Probate Records ( County and Chancery Courts) Vol. C-E from Jan. 1853-1902 for Monroe co. TN.

I found an estate of particular interest. It is from the estate of Worth Stickley. The year is 1896. He must have owned a store and he had lots of accounts. Following are the names that appeared in his inventory. I make no claim for the accuracy of the list, I am just reading it as I see it so there may be some mistakes but I thought it might just help us to see who is living in and around Monroe co. in the 1890 time frame since we don't have a census to look at.

Here's the list: Mrs. M.M. Stephens, Jack Horst, Alex Rider, Thos. Gray, Joe McKeehan, ? Wilson, John Bivens, John Daly, Lon Cagle, ? Russell, Geo.Harrill, Tip Tate and R.K.

Out of these accounts $1681.31 were good, $561.69 were doubtful, and $1007.01 were no good.

Most of the accounts just amounted to a few dollars each. I did learn that if an account was over 6 yrs. old it couldn't be collected because of the statute of limitations.

Here is a list of notes that is part of the Worth Stickley estate. I happen to have an old note in my possession from 1895 but it is from Hamilton co. Ohio but it appears as if it is generic and could be used for any state or county. It is almost the size of a business envelope and is similar to a business check. At the very top it has a line where the person would put the name of the city, month, day and year. The next line says Nine months after the date we promise to pay to the order of _____________( this is where Worth Stickley's name would appear, the sum of ________ ( the amount would go here) and then the next line would again name the town, post office and county and then would be signed by the person that owes the money.

On this page of microfilm it lists the month, day and year but for sake of saving my fingers and wrists I am only putting the name and year. If someone would need the month and day, I would be happy to tell them.

The foregoing accounts and notes are reported as they appear upon the books of said Worth Stickley but many of them are perhaps subject to credits and off sets. Some are claimed by the parties whom they are against as to large and some are denied altogether and this report is made subject to such claims as made and appear just.
