Robertson Carloss, 1825
Contributed by Joe David, 2003
Below is the text of the will of Robertson Carloss, transcribed by me from the WPA microfilm in the Dallas Public Library. I descend from his daughter Amelia Carloss who married Benjamin David, Jr. I copied the will exactly, including the misreading of Carloss as Carlofs and the erratic capitalization.
