REGISTER OF DECEDENTS
WHO DIED INTESTATE 1863 - 1870
From Administrators Bond Book

Abstracted by Florence Hutchison and Joyce Mullens from the Bond Book in the old probate library of the Circuit Court, giving the File Number of Cases, the Decedent, Death Date and name of Administrator(s). Intestate means WITHOUT A WILL! There are almost 300 listed here. In most of these files will be a Petition for Letters of Administration which can be ordered from the Circuit Court Clerk, Morgan County Courthouse, Jacksonvillle, IL 62650, for $1.00 each photocopy. Please give Name of Decedent, Administrator(s) and File Number.

Those without a File Number, have NO Files. To quote Florence, "The administration probably was unfinished for some reason, or the papers lost when there was a re-shuffling of all records during the 1937-41 WPA workers plans for many of the Illinois county courthouse records. However the Morgan County files are in fine shape and usable from 1827 on. The first frame courthouse on the northwest corner of the square burned on December 6, 1827. The records from the second courthouse on the southwest corner of the square were removed to the new and present courthouse in 1868. In the 1960 period of time, there was, again, a re-shuffling of records in most Illinois County courthouses, by State Law which permitted County and Court Clerks to destroy records which appeared to be of little value to ordinary business for which they were established."

As with any transcribed records, errors could have been made. One should always check the original source for accuracy.
