Robert and Esther (Holcomb) Jameson Probates

© Kathy Duncan, 2016

FamilySearch has made available probate records for most Missouri Counties. These records have not been indexed by FamilySearch yet, but many of the volumes are indexed. Using them is like spinning microfilm at library, except my library does not have these reels.

In any event, I was able to locate the probate records of Robert and Esther (Holcomb) Jameson, and can draw the conclusion that they were married. Robert Jameson is deceased by mid-1848 with an estate in Jasper County, Missouri. Esther was deceased by early 1852. The minor children of Robert Jameson, who are also Esther's children, chose a guardian in August of 1854. These children were Jasper N Jameson, Anna E. Jameson, and Charlotte Jameson. James Skaggs, husband of Hannah (Holcomb) Skaggs brought suit against the estate.

The Jameson name is most frequently spelled as Jamerson in these records.
