Treasure Chest Thursday – The Heirs of Paul Shackford (1702-1786) (Blog 309)

Paul Shackford’s heirs are listed on a piece of paper in his probate records  because the heirs asked the Probate Judge, Benjamin Greenleaf, to assign a committee to divide Paul’s real estate for them – we have added their birth dates and Paul’s other children based on the birth records listed in the Vital Records of Newbury Massachusetts to the End of the Year 1849 Volume I.-Births. Heirs of Paul Shackford - from Probate Records

 

 

 

His two children:

     Sarah Pearson (born Feb 1, 1728)
