The earliest editions had numerous pictures of far away places. Everything sold at the public auction is listed on a single page folded in half and then in thirds. I begin with the reverse side: ]

[Next is a group of bills submitted to the estate administrator for payment and listed on the first annual estate settlement which follows immediately after the vouchers. Paper must have been in short supply for even the court clerks used what appears to be, scraps of paper. This first claim is the original note "signed by mark" by Jesse Canada in 1854 in Stone County, Missouri. The day of the month is a best guess on my part. The note was written on the top portion of a sheet of paper 7 1/2 inches wide, which was unevenly torn along the bottom.]

[By this time Mary Ann had moved with her young children to Macon County onto the 37.28 acres land grant she received April 14, 1856. Perhaps some of Jesse's children by his previous marriages went with her. It's curious that none of those children are mentioned by name in these estate records, unless the Mary Canada below is Jesseís daughter rather than his widow. Circumstantial evidence suggests Roman Hillís wife was "a" Mary Canada. Mary Ann was left with six children, all under the age of eleven when Jesse died, but he reportedly had at least two other sons who were still teenagers. Alfred Bealmear was a Macon County neighbor of Mary Ann and the "Jesse Canada Probate Records" filed in Macon County are Bealmear's guardianship reports. The reverse side of these two slips of paper identify them as "Voucher No 1 and 2".]
