Inventory and sale of the Estate of Jacob Clinman deceased commenced September 5, 1817.
Peter Clingman, apparently his brother, was the main purchaser. He may have been doing so for the benefit of the widow. Items included furniture, books, a cow and calf, bedsteads, cuboard and chest, looking glass and a Negro woman and child [$585]. He also bought a cutting machine with patent rights for Surry County.
Elizabeth Clingman purchased a flax wheel and cotton
Thomas M. Poindexter bought 1/5 part of Negro Boston for $120, and a horse.

Notes due the Estate of Jacob Clingman were listed. Most were small amounts, $5 or less - the only family member I noted was Francis A. Poindexter who owed $1.50. Joseph Patterson did own a note for $35. This accounting was also returned to the Nov Term 1817 and recorded.
