Probate  Documents

          Probate books and estate papers are kept in the Shelby County Courthouse vault.  The probated records have been filed by settlement date**.  To date, I have inventoried the 1822-1874 estates in the file boxes of the Clerk's vault.  The information online reflects this inventory of estate papers.  If you would like copies of estate bundles, please contact the Clerk of Shelby County Indiana, 415 S Harrison St, Shelbyville, Indiana, 46176.  Copies are $1/page; the Clerk will  NOT  ACCEPT  PERSONAL  CHECKS.

** There is one exception to this. It seems that when Hiram Alldredge, first Clerk of the Court, died in office, the estates settled during his term were "stuffed away" in the confusion and not filed.  Sometime in the mid 1860's, these papers were discovered and filed.  Since the index books and numbering system had already been started, these very earliest estate papers were filed in fileboxes 72-75; many are entered in the index book with no settlement date noted.  This is not an "official" explanation, just my best guess.
