In the matter of the estate of CAPTAIN JOHN PACKARD of Hounsfield, Jefferson Co., NY:
AMOS ROOT one of the Administrators of the estate, swore on 23 Oct. 1807 in surrogate court, that he had discharged all of the personal estate of the said John Packard and his personal estate was not sufficient to discharge all of the debts. At the time of his decease, John Packard owned land in Hounsfield. In an inventory completed on 26 November 1806, by AMOS and SARAH ROOT, there were several notes that were not collectable:

LEMUEL HORN? Of Champion
NOTE: Within the grantee deeds of Jefferson Co., there is an entry for JOHN PACKARD as the grantor and the grantee CHAMPION & STORRS in 1807. The property that John owned was probably sold to satisfy his debts.
