Paper: Morning Star (Rockford, IL)obtained on Genealogybank.com
In an attempt to make the connection between Liddle and the Frames, I'm trying to trace Liddle's family back a few generations. This item was one item that I came across while doing those searches. Liddle is mentioned in this will and he has no biological connection to Murphy, so this will won't help me in my search. Murphy had a sizeable estate and, if I did not know where Liddle was residing in the 1943 era, the records of Murphy's estate would mention that.
Even smaller wills are mentioned in newspapers during this era and those references sometimes mention property and bequests, etc. If your ancestor's will cannot be found, searching for a possible newspaper mention may be worth your while.
