Final  Report

In the Matter of the Estate of John C. Wagner Decd
Report and Resignation of Henry Doble Admr
Approved L.J. Hackney Judge
Filed November 21, 1892 J. R. Sedgwick Clerk

            As Administrator of the Estate of said decedent I make this my final report and ask that the same be approved and I be discharged.

            I am chargeable as follows:

1. With money received from 1st National Bank Shelbyville, Indiana $609.57
I claim credits as follows:
Voucher 1. Araminta Wagner Executrix $580 87
Voucher 2. John R. Sedgwick Clerk 8 70
Voucher 3. Adams & Carter 10 00
Voucher 4. Self for Services 10 00
  Total $609 57

            I did not file any inventory because by agreement with sd Executrix of the last will of said decedent it was agreed I need not do so until it was ascertained that steps she would take in the matters of the allotment of said estate. At the time of my appointment we did not know here that there was a will however one was probated in Pennsylvania and a certified copy of the same has been probated in this court
            I have received no money belonging to said Estate except that with which I have charged myself in this report. I do not deem it necessary to file any inventory. I ask that report be received and I be discharged.
