You can see the will at Tennessee, Probate Court Books, 1795-1927, Johnson County Wills 1882-1932, Will of Catharine Stout, 1901 (image 51 of 172); digital images, FamilySearch (http://FamilySearch.org : accessed 15 Jul 2015).
Here is my transcription of her will:
- Daughter Betsy Snider lived in District 3, Johnson County.Daughter Polly Adkins died in 1899 in Watauga County so presumably her inheritance went to her children.
- Daughter Sallie Snider lived in Wilkes County. Sallie was my 2nd great-grandmother who had moved away in 1861, so I’m glad to see that her mother included her.
- Daughter-in-law Rachel (Brookshire) Stout married Andrew. Rachel was also Catherine’s niece (daughter of her sister Sarah Wagner Brookshire). In the 1900 census, Catherine lived with Rachel and Andrew’s family, so no one had to move the loom!
- Daughter-in-law Mary (Holman) Stout married Daniel; they lived in District 4, Johnson County, adjacent to Catherine and Andrew.
- Granddaughter Sarah Nave was the daughter of Andrew J. Stout.
- Executor W. G. Nave, William Garland Nave, was the father of her grandson-in-law, David S. Nave.
- Witness E. C. Wilson (Edward Clinton Wilson), was another relative (his mother was Sarah Elizabeth Stout).
- Witness R. L. Nave (Richard L. Nave) was David’s brother and a son of W. G. Nave.
