This list is from Millington Lytle’s estate file, a 133-page packet of information. For my purposes, this is the most important page in the packet, because it lists his heirs, thus providing evidence of the parentage of a number of people, including Elizabeth Lytle, wife of John Lytle. It also provides husband’s names for the daughters and several grandchildren’s names, as well as ages and residences for the whole list.
