Thank you very much for the information.
Since my query posted in 2008 I have locate an obituary in Frankfort, Kentucky for James H. Hockensmith.
He died at the Mayo Brothers Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota on April 7, 1916. James never married and was survived by a brother, 2 step-sisters and several nieces and nephews.
I am curious how his assets were distributed and would assume his estate went to probate in Lemhi County.
Can you offer any suggestions how I might obtain this information.
