Letters of Administration Vol A 1837-1864 – only Williams is G. W. Williams. [However, volume itself says “Book II” (Book 2), and the Index to Probate does not include the earliest volume, so I’m thinking there could be an unindexed probate in Volume A of the probate record.
p. 536. G. W. Williams died intestate having at the time of his death property which may be lost, etc., unless an administrator is appointed. G. W. Sanders, public administrator for Crawford County, is appointed 16 Apr 1864. “Names of the heirs of G. W. Williams are Martha E Williams Judith A S Williams & G B McClenin Williams – now resident of Dent Co Mo.”
