Can't Find That Estate Fight?

If there was a court case after a relative died, make certain you have looked up every name of every heir in the court indexes. The estate being settled might be the estate of John Smith, but it could easily be that son-in-law Gideon Johnson is the lead plaintiff in the court case and grandson  Barton Hanson is the lead defendant. Because of this Smith's estate fight will probably be in the plaintiffs' index under Gideon Johnson and in the defendants' index under Barton Hanson.
