The Edward Bently estate which lately went through probate in the county judge’s office is a peculiar one. Mr. Bently died in 1869 and the estate was never settled. He had taken up a homestead of 80 acres in the town of Mentor, and a patent from the U.S. government. Under a law afterwards passed a homesteader who had taken less than 160 acres, or his heirs, was entitled to script with which could be located enough land to make up the 160 acres. This script is transferable and can be sold by the administrator of the estate. In order to dispose of this government script, it thus became necessary for the estate to go through the probate court indue form. The heirs of several estates have recently taken advantage of this law and there are others doubtless who have failed thus far to take advantage of it, not knowing of their rights under the law. -- Rep. and Press
