Looking for Wills of Duvalls in Edmonson Co., KY

Looking for information about a will for Jacob Duvall, DOD 1 Aug 1856 in Edmonson County, KY. His YOB is either 1778 or 1772 in St. Mary’s County, MD. His wife was Elizabeth Ricketts from Nelson or Bullitt County, KY. They were married in 1802 in Nelson. Does anyone have any info?

Also looking for a will and DOD for a John Miles Duvall, YOB about 1804 in Nelson County. He marries Margaret Finley 21 Apr 1824 in Nelson County, KY. I have no DOD for John, but it appears he died in Edmonson County. He is last listed in the 1880 USC for Edmonson County, aged 74, living alone. I can’t find any information for him after 1880. In 1870 he is listed in the USC for Edmonson County with his wife. In the 1860 USC for Edmonson County John and Margaret have left Bullitt County and move to Edmonson County where they are listed in the census with Elizabeth Ricketts Duvall, aged 77. It appears to me that this John inherits Jacob’s property.

This is NOT the John Miles Duvall born about 1806 and lived in Hardin County, KY. These 2 individuals appear to be first cousins.

Does anyone have any info about their wills?
