"G" Surnames, Butler County, Pennsylvania Probate Files, 1895-1903

Note:  Since I originally posted this list I've finished looking at all the records in Butler County, Pennsylvania Probate files 1895-1907 no G343-465 and have added the names and image numbers.

Below is a partial list (through image 2004 and about the year 1903) of individuals whose last names begin with the letter G and whose wills were probated in Butler County, Pennsylvania, between 1895 and about 1903.  These names appear on the FamilySearch collection, Pennsylvania, Probate Records, 1683-1994, specifically Probate files 1895-1907 no G343-465.   (At this time, this collection is not indexed but can be browsed.)  The numbers after each name below indicate the image numbers, not page numbers.  Type the number into the box at the top of the FamilySearch page and click the arrow to go to the page.  Again. this is a partial list which goes only to page 2004, about the year 1903. 

Search hint:  Use your mouse to click on this page, then press the F3 button on your keyboard.  A search box will appear at the bottom of your screen where you can type the name of the person for whom you're searching.  When you're finished with the box, click on the "x" at the left and it will disappear.  If you search this way, remember to search name variations, too.

There are 3141 images in the collection.  I stopped at image 2004, in 1903, because the man I was trying to find died in 1899.  My method for searching was to move forward 5 images at a time.  If that image showed a different name, I went back 4 images, then forward 1 page at a time until I found the next name.

This post is an offering of a Random Act of Genealogical Kindness (RAOGK).  Since I had to search page by page I thought I might as well write down the names and image numbers.  I hope it will be helpful to anyone using a search engine to find an ancestor whose name is on the above list -- at least until the images are indexed.



  1. Just for the heck of it, I checked John Greer, Image #1100. My Greers landed in Maryland and went south from there, but since you made it so easy I couldn't resist a peek. He's not one of mine (no surprise) but John Greer's will was made in Lawrence Co. in case anyone else is curious. Thanks for the RAOGK.

  2. My neighbor's husband died without a will, but she wanted to make sure the children from his first marriage inheritted nothing, even though I don't think they had anything. Anyway, it looks like she created a will, had two other neighbors "witness" it, and another neighbor notarized it. I realize if it's proven, the estate will go into probate, but what could happen to the wife and others involved?
