And Finally: David R. Densler

January 20, 2020

David died intestate. Fortunately for us Densler followers, we have probate.

There’s a problem with 2 slaves, Hector and June (possibly Jane). They are part of the estate, and they will not stay at any one place. This of course means I will need to check the newspapers to see if they were ever reported as runaways.

Does the DenslerFest end here? It should, since there are no more wills or probate records that I can find. However, this requires a day trip to Savannah to revisit some cemetery locations. I’ve reviewed the Densler burial records on the City of Savannah’s cemetery site and made screenshots of the ones that we’re interested in.
