Estate Documents for William Oakley in 1825
Estate Documents for William Oakley in 1825
From Bath County Book of Wills, Book B. Pages 25-27 There is no will, just the Estate Settlement. Interestingly, if our death for William is accurate, this estate is settled 12 years after his death. I think this is correct, however, because it clearly lists John S. Oakley (his oldest son) as obtaining all the clothes from William.

Frank Kostka Eulogy Notes
Frank Kostka Eulogy Notes
Frank Kostka was a long-time employee of West em Electric Hawthorne Works in Cicero, Illinois. He was a gregarious gentleman and it was said that he knew everyone. As a service to his fellow members of the Odd Fellows (IOOF), he began to give eulogies in 1949. By the time of his death in 1992, he had conducted eulogies for over 17,000 persons, primarily from the free-thinking segment of the Czech community. Mr. Kostka took great care to make each service meaningful for the family and friends of the deceased. He would take notes beforehand on a 3x5" card concerning known vital statistics (dates and places of birth and death, maiden name, etc.). He also included the names of relatives or possibly close friends. To add a personal touch, his notes detailed the deceased's personal characteristics, hobbies, and organizations. The importance of this information is obvious to the family historian. Time after time the refrain "if only I had asked" is uttered by descendents. If they are fortunate enough to have an ancestor mentioned in this index, Mr. Kostka gives them at least a partial glimpse of their roots through his notes. It is important to note that in a few cases the information gathered by Mr. Kostka is very sparse. Also, there are names listed in the index for which only a memorial card exists. These cards were gathered by Mr. Kostka and are included as a part of the Kostka Note
