Administration Docket, Henry Wherley, 1846, Tuscarawas County, Ohio

"Ohio, Probate Records, 1789-1996," images, FamilySearch (,266437201 : accessed 22 August 2015), Tuscarawas > Administration dockets 1817-1857 vol 1-3 > image 390 of 486; county courthouses, Ohio

Searching at FamilySearch through Ohio Probate records, I located the Administration Docket for my paternal 4th-great grandfather, Henry Wherely, who died in 1846 in Tuscarawas County, Ohio.

The record lists the estate case number as 848A and the administrator as Samuel Shawver.  I'm not sure at this point what the relationship is between Shawver and the Wherley families.

April 1846 - Letters issued. Bond $500.00 - Henry Wherley & Phillip Datts, security - George Bugher, Daniel Brideman, John Yingling, appraisers.
May 6, 1846 - Bond filed & letters issued
June 26, 1846 - Appraisement & sale bill filed and recorded.
March 24, 1848 - Final account filed.
Aug. term 1848 - Account passed & recorded.

The record gives some book and page references to where these records are filed.  I will be continuing to search the court records at FamilySearch to see if I can locate the additional information about Henry's estate.

Henry was 70 years old when he died on January 15, 1846 in Tuscarawas County, Ohio.
