Letters of Administration:

Fannie E. Smith on the estate of Jesse Smith, late of Bartow County.
Transcribed by:   Laurel Baty

Note: I believe a Letter of Administration means that Fannie E. was the executor of Jesse’s estate. I do not know if this is our Jesse Smith, but Jesse and Polly Smith appear in the 1880 census and not the 1900 census. A Francis E. Barron, 35, married a Jesse Smith on 18 June 1882 in Bartow County, so it is possible Polly died and Jesse remarried, although Jesse would be 65-72 years old. Frances E. would be Fannie E., of course.
