I've got a deed, dated 1835 in Washington County. In it, the
petitioners, Baily Ambrose and wife Eliza, Jacob N. Phelps, Jordan H.
Phelps and Nehemiah Phelps, "show your Worships that they are tenants
in common with Levi N. Phelps, Joseph W. Phelps, Priscilla Phelps,
Henry Phelps and Charles Phelps, minors of tender years as heirs at
law of Henry Phelps, Snr. deceased."
The petition is to divide the property of the deceased, Henry Phelps,
Sr., and a guardian is appointed for the minors names. My question
is if the wording of the petition establishes Eliza Ambrose, Jacob
Phelps, Jordan Phelps and Nehemiah Phelps as siblings of the minors,
or if they are siblings (or other relatives) of the deceased? Or
would more need to be known before that kind of a determination can
be made as to the relationship(s) of all of those people to one
Have you looked at the 1830 and 1840 Census for Baily Ambrose, Jacob
N. Phelps, Jordan H. Phelps, Nehemiah Phelps and Henry Phelps to see
how many people are in their families?
Is this the only piece of evidence that you have on these people?
