no date - Inventory & account of Sales of the estate of Christopher O'Neal, dec'd., sold by the administrator [not named] on six months credit.  At least 5 pages (some appear to be missing) of items.  Various buyers were Nathan O'Neal, Joseph Pugh, Sarah Midyett, Thomas O'Neal, Oliver O'Neal, Banister Midyett, Christopher Flowers, Enoch Miller, Cornelius Paine, John Barns,  & Richard Gray.

[I'm not sure if this is two separate estates or one.  All pages were lumped together but some pages indicate the name as "Christopher O'Neal" while others indicate the name as "Christopher D. O'Neal".  Also there were 2 different administrators.  The "special adm'r., Oliver O'Neal, seemed to be handling the Christopher O'Neal estate while John O'Neal appeared to be handling the Christopher D. O'Neal estate.]
