"A person employed to write what another dictates or to copy what has been written by another."
The subject today is the probate file of Alpheus B. Smith (1798-1840) of Medfield, Norfolk County, Massachusetts. The papers are in Probate Packet No. 16,776 in the Norfolk County [Mass.] Probate Court records. I listed the papers in the Probate Packet in Amanuensis Monday - Insolvency Sale of Land of Alpheus B. Smith.
The full packets are not available on Family History Library microfilms - only the Clerk's copies recorded in the Probate Court Records are available on microfilm. All of the papers in this packet are in three volumes, but they are on three different microfilms. I have many of the papers in the packet, but not all of them. The next time I go to Salt Lake City, I will find and obtain the rest of them. Here are three more of the papers filed in the Probate Court:
