The Inventory of Thomas Stigall
1840 Pulaski County, Kentucky


Hi Family,

Below are inventory items from the estate of Thomas Stigall, born 1770 in Virginia, died 1840 in Pulaski County, our ancestor, and grandfather of Patrick Doyle Stigall. Some of the information could not be read properly because I have a bad copy, but most is accurate. Whenever there were spelling mistakes I left them, and I tried to capitalize whatever was done so in the original document.
