Not Named But Mentioned

Everyname indexes to records are wonderful finding tools, but they occasionally have their limitations. An 1826 deed in Kentucky mentions a deceased landowner by name and states that his widow is alive at the time of the deed, but does not mention her by name. The 1826 reference means that she's alive as of that date even though she's not specifically identified.

Do you have ancestors hiding in documents where there name is not used?
