Thomas Jefferson Papers

William Miller to Thomas Jefferson, 24 November 1809

From William Miller

Goochland—Nov. 24th 1809.


It does not appear by the records of this court, that any such will as Reuben Skelton’s has been proved and recorded in the said Court—nor does it appear that letters of administration has been granted to any person by the said Court—It is presumed therefore that he was not a resident of this County at the time of his death

I am Sir—Yr Mo. Obt

Wm Miller

RC (MHi); endorsed by TJ as received 26 Nov. 1809 and so recorded in SJL.
