My 4th great grandmother, Agnes Houseman, is listed in an 1863 Letters of Administration record along with her husband Peter Houseman.
The document states that Peter is a resident of Bergen County, New Jersey at the time he signed this document on 23 Dec 1863.
I have some questions...
Is the date that he signed this synonymous with Agnes' death date? I imagine it's not, but is it likely that she died within that month at least?
Also, if some would kindly look at the record and interpret it for me -- Is the document saying that she died in New York or that she died elsewhere (perhaps Bergen County) but still had assets in New York?
Here's a link to the document:https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-1961-28640-1959-47?...
I'd appreciate any help!
