Estate Inventories Listing Debtors

If your ancestor's estate had enough value to require a probate, the inventory of that estate may list more than household goods. Are there any debts listed that are due to the estate? The names of people who owed your ancestor money can be clues as to their associates, neighbors, or additional family members. 

And your ancestor didn't have to be rich to have died with people owing him money.
