Buyers at the Estate Sale

If you are fortunate enough to have a list of people who purchased property at your ancestor’s estate sale, consider locating those people in the decennial census before and after the sale. Where they were from or where they moved to may help you on your ancestor.

Purchasers at estate sales were usually neighbors or relatives of the deceased.
