To the Co. Court of Collin Co. for Probate Business.

We the undersigned commissioners appointed at the last term of said Court to make partition and distribution of the Estates of MICHAEL and CHARLOTTE MALLOW, dec. would beg leave to make the following report.

First we proceed to make a careful examination of the lands belonging to said Estates and find them unsusceptible of division without great and manifest injury to the interest of the heirs of said estate, the main portion being in one farm with one good farm house a well stables and out houses all together, and the timber part about sufficient to supply the same. The whole taken as an entirety is very valuable, a first class place being out of the immediate vicinity of town a division into 13/13 parts would render the portion unsable (sic) and could not be done so as to give more than one or two portions a share in the buildings.

In fact a division into two parts would render them less valuable than the whole. We value the land at $5000.00.

After leaving out the land we find the negroes unseptible (unsusceptible) of division among so many heirs, we found them to consist 1st of an old faithful negro man tolerable constitution & his wife also old but feeble and often having fits. We thought the interest & feelings of the heirs as well as the prompting of humanity required that they should be kept together. We valued them together at $400.00.

We found the negroes to consist 2d of a woman about 50 years of age but nearly bind, one of her daughters aged about 15 years. The woman brings water, washes and does heavy work but she is always accompanied by and waited upon by the girl on account of her very defective sight. The girl is near sighted. She has never learned to plow, wash or cook. She appears very dull & to have but little sense. We think them worth more together than separate & value them at $400.00.

We next proceeded to set apart personal property to those heirs who had received partial advancement & no advancements, as far as could be done like in kind to the property advancements to the others, and them made the shares equal with other property & claims. As the advancements had not been valued the property contained in at the same prices of the property which we set apart in lieu of the advancements. The property thus set apart in lieu of and to make the advancements equal and the property thus set apart by lot and the value set upon the advancements is described as follows.

To the Hon. the County Court of Collin County exercising probate jurisdiction.

The undersigned having been appointed commissioners at the July Term of your Court to make partition and distribution of the Estate of R. M. MUGG decd. would respectfully submit the following report to wit. After an examination of the lands belonging to said Estate taking into consideration quality, quantity and improvements we find the whole Amount of land to be 644 acres of which se set apart to CATHERINE MUGG surviving widow 160 acres in three tracts as follows, the first tract contains 100 acres, is a part of the Headright Survey of William Warden and bounded as follows, Beginning at a post the S E cr. of said headright survey, Thence West 47 chains and 25 links post on the N B line thereof and N E corner of 152 acre tract deeded to S. H. Wilson by Elisha Chambers Admrs. Of the Estate of R. M. Mugg, decd. Thence South 20 chains a post Thence East 47 chains and 25 links a post on the E B line of the aforesaid headright survey Thence North 20 chains to the place of beginning containing 94 ½ acres. The second tract contains 5 ½ acres and is bounded as follows, Beginning at the S E corner of the first named…

…tract Thence East 3 chains and 62 links a post from which a hawthorn 6 inches in dia mkd X bears S 30ºvE 17 links Thence South 15 chains a post in branch bottom from which a chittim elm mkd S 12 inches dia bears N 87 W 23 links Thence West 1 chain to spring branch Thence up the center of said branch in westing 4 chains Thence North 14 chains to a pst 38 links west from the beginning Thence East to the beginning.

The 3rd tract contains 60 acres. 40 acres off the S W corner of the headright survey of Henry Haln and 20 acres off the headright survey of Benjamin White the 40 acre tract is bounded as follows, Beginning at the S W corner of said Hahn Thence east to the center of the East Fork of Trinity Thence in a North westerly direction up the center of said creek and west to the W B line of said Hahn running sufficiently far North to make 40 acres for the boundaries of the 20 acre tract we refer you to a deed executed by Benjamin White to R. M. Mugg dated July 16th 1857. The reminder of the land comprising 464 acres we find it impracticable o divide into so many different tracts without material injury to its value, we would therefore recommend that it remain undivided for the time being.

To Catharine Mugg we set apart 160 acres of

 

100 acres valued at

$3350.00

60 acres valued at

900.00
