In the matter of the estate of WILLIAM GALLEA, of Ellisburgh, Jefferson Co., NY:
On October 21, 1834, BENJAMIN BEMIS and JAMES GALLEA applied for Letters of Administration because William Gallea died intestate. They stated that William had died about the month of September 1829; that James Gallea is the son of the deceased. They further stated that the estate would not exceed $200 in their opinion. Further, that Demis Bemis, wife of one of the petitioners, is the widow of the deceased, and had married Benjamin Bemis.
On October 21, 1834, the Surrogate Court appointed Benjamin Bemis and James Gallea as Administrators of the estate. On that date, Benjamin Bemis, James Gallea, John Bruce and James Moore provided the Administrative bond. Also, on that date, DIMIS BEMIS renounced her right to the Letters of Administration on the estate of William Gallea, and her renunciation was filed on 8 Nov. 1834.
On October 10, 1835, Benjamin Bemis named the heirs of the deceased:
