File 1, and the folder they were finally found list their location as: Estate Book B. p. 104. They CAN BE FOUND in the metal files of original papers that can be found in most courthouses. They are in a small wall file box "Estate Records prior to 1949, Cal-Car," in the County judge's office. All records pertaining to the settlements are there, but are so old and brittle that visitors are not allowed to handle them. A Mrs. Jordan of the Judge's office, removed them and Xeroxed them for me [NJC]. Apparently they had been overlooked in the copying of older books into the newer volumes.
