Youngstown, O. [Ohio?], September 2nd., 1899

Joshua E.Peel,& Son.
Armah [Armagh] County,Ireland.

Susan McDowell, deceased, who resided at
Kingston, Lorinda Park, Ireland, left quite a large
estate, and died intestate leaving as her heirs one
sister who had nine children.
Doctor James T. Moran, deceased; he died
intestate and left five children, William B. Moran,
living, F.D. Moran, living, Susan Alling living, Annie
Alling, living, Kate Moran, living, Eliza and Margaret
Moran, living, Alice Smith living, and Jane Alling,
deceased, who left four children; also the estate of
William and Moses Taylor, brothers of Susan McDowell,
and both deceased.
I represent Lena Law, one of the children
of Doctor James T. Moran deceased, who claims an
interest in both these estates. Some of these heirs,
have already received money from these estates, but it
is claimed that Doctor James T. Moran, died before this
sister that had the nine children, and since he died
before her death, it is claimed that his children
would not inherit.
Morrison M. Taylor, son of Robert Taylor,
is the administrator, of the estate of Susan McDowell,
and William Taylor. His address is, Riversdale Moahill
County, Leitrim Ireland. The attorney for the estate
is, James A. Denning, Upper Ormond Quay, Dublin,
William and Moses Taylors' place of
business was #119 Francis Street, Dublin, Ireland.
This estate has been partly administered, and is worth
about 300,000.
Would you care to take hold of this
matter, and aid me in looking it up? We have no money
to spend, and we would have to work on a contingency.
I write you, because I did some work for Robert
McCreary, and for that reason I prefer you.
If any further explanation is needed,
please let me know. I understand that Eliza and
Margaret Moran, are in Ireland now, looking this
matter up.
I am,
Very truly yours,
S.M. Thompson
