      From: Toni Fenton; Sent: Friday, August 10, 2012; To: Gwen Levine Subject: Probate records for William Robertson Hi Gwen, The Probate file you requested is five pages, at 25 cents each for a total of $1.25. With an SASE and a check made out to the Benton County Clerk for said amount, I will be happy to forward these pages to you.

      I am glad to tell you that on one of the pages it lists the names of the heirs of Mr. Robertson, and that there were 7 children. There was a small piece of property that was bequeathed to a D.C. Smithson, but other than that, there was nothing else listed in inventory. Mr. Robertson did not have a will.

      The papers were from around 1874 and are written with pen & ink and are difficult to decipher, unless you've been doing this a while. There are a few words here and there I cannot make out. If you want, I will type what I can unless you're up to the task. J

      I also took the liberty of checking the marriage books. I found three possible matches. Let me know if you're interested in that information.

      Which child of William Robertson's is your decedent? I didn't know if you have an Ancestry tree, or access, but there were two censuses with information … 1860 & 1870, which verified a lot of information. Toni Toni Fenton Records Manager/Archives Benton County Clerk's Office 300 W. Poplar, Suite 2 Rogers, AR 72756 479-636-1037 Dear Ms. Fenton, I would like to get a copy of the will and probate records of one of my ancestors that died in Benton Co., AR in 1875 and his will probated in 1878.
