Will Book A, 1814 - April 1829:  The original index and volume are missing (since at least 1997). Microfilm of the original pages is available for viewing though compiled alphabetically with later Will Books across 30 reels of film. The complete Will index for the county, including part or all of the lost Book A index, is also available in typescript.  The accuracy of the typescript is unknown at this time.  At least one omission has been found between the Will Index typescript and the Microfilm Index. (Note - another rough draft of the Index does not include Book A.)
Index to Will Book A (typescript, as found):
George Biddis, p 25; Abraham Cole, p 4; Mathias Clark, p 6; John Coryell, p 7; Samuel Dearborn, p 1; Joseph Hornbeck, p 8; Frederick Harman, p 20; Ephraim Killem [Killam] p 31; Peter Michael, p 6; William Smith p 13; Solomon Westbrook, p 1. (Note - some of these names are repeated in Book B which may be additional estate business, citations or errors.  Microfilm comparison of the original document would be required for confirmation.)
