  • Notes 
    • Abigail was still alive on 15 Sep 1840, when she signed for $286.89 as
      her dowry from the estate of Thos. L Signed with an "X". Steve
      Lawrence wrote that he has a copy of this document. The following also
      comes from Steve: Abigail does not appear on the 1840 Census for
      Butler County as a separate household. She may appear on the 1840
      census with Stephen and Susan Step ?? which lists an older female
      (need to confirm this - info is from Barbara Lawrence). Abigail's
      children had mostly left the county. Stephen Step was possibly farming
      Thomas' property after he married Susan Lawrence, reflected by the
      fact that he bought all the parcels of this property distributed to
      survivors in 1851 (as well as the census info). This is in an
      Indenture of 1851, which says this land was patented 8 Sep 1815 on the
      Big Muddy Creek, Butler Co. (Source: Deed Book?, pg. 593 for 1851).
      However, I think it is the same 200 acres he had all along - evidently
      it took several years to get the lines straightened out. Abigail
      appears in Butler Co. tax lists (no record for 1836?) for 1837, 1839,
      1840, and 1842 - 1845, usually with 250 and sometimes 280 acres on
      either Meadow Branch or the Big Muddy River. (Information is courtesy
      of Don Fletcher).
