Louisa Mary CHILTON, 1831-1894, Alburg, VT

Classification: Query
Louisa was sister of Amanda Chilton MOTT (1827-1863), and aunt of my great Grandfather Leonard Bernard MOTT. My great grandparents Leonard and Elvorette HOLCOMB MOTT moved to Newport News, Virginia, about 1894-5, shortly after Louisa died. They had her coin silver tea spoons with her initials on them. I am wondering if Louisa left my great grandfather a substantial amount which allowed them to build a large home on four lots in the new city of Newport News. Does anyone have knowledge of Louisa's will? How difficult would it be for me to find such a will in Alburg?

Some of my Holcomb(e), Mott, and Chilton information comes from a bible that was in the hands of my grandmother, Lula Mott Fenton, and partially copied in 1937, by the Works Progress Administration (WPA). I don't have the bible, but the WPA information is available through the Library of Virginia (State Archives of Virginia).

Thanks.

Tom.
