Adam Wirth's Probate

Adam Wirth's probate file, #7016, was filed in Wayne County, Michigan.  A few years ago I viewed this file at the Archives of Michigan and took the notes below.  On my "to do" list was another look at this file.  Now it's online at FamilySearch!  Luckily, the Archives had a surname index, so I knew which file to access at FamilySearch.
