>George and Nancy Webster were married over 40 years when she died in Nov 1877. In Mar 1878, George married Sarah (Owens) Odell from Owensburg, IN. Sarah's brother, Lilburn Owens, is the namesake of Owensburg. She was born in 1822 and marrie d to Sidney Stanhope Odell in 1838. Sidney was a very successful merchant in Owensburg until he died in 1873.
>George died in Feb 1880. This 23 month marriage ended up costing George's family most of his estate. From the Probate Records, George signed a prenuptual agreement with Sarah that stated she would receive $1000 from his estate if he died befor e her (a lot of money in 1880). George also borrowed a lot of money in 1878 and 1879. These notes were part of the Court Records. To satisfy these obligations, his estate was inventoried and auctioned. The list of items, amount and purchaser's ar e part of the records (this, to me, was very interesting). His children had to buy, at the auction, the things that were previously owned and used by them. The three youngest boys, James, George and Ephriam, had to buy their beds, blankets, cookin g supplies, heating stove, furniture and farming equipment to maintain the farm and support themselves.
>George owned 639 acres, from tax records, at the time of his death. A sizeable amount at the time for a family farm. I don't know how much was sold at the auction. His estate was estimated at $6400 before the auction. The auction brought about $3 200 to settle the estate. Sarah received $1000 on Apr 2, 1881.
