I am looking to obtain a copy of the will of James S. Rhone who died in November, 1899. He is buried in Wood County along with three of his wives. I have since found that that he has a will #476, Book F; pages 37-52. Not all these pages are his will, but it also includes an inventory. How would I be able to obtain a copy of this will? Can some kind soul out there help me out?

What can you learn at the Library of Congress’ FREE Chronicling America Historic American Newspapers site? (link: http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/)
As an example I searched on Quitman in Texas newspapers and came up with these two of many hits. You might find your own ancestors’ names there either in Texas or other states.

Thanks to Randy Seaver for calling this site to my attention today in his daily tips.
