      (3) In his will dated August 9, 1816, William LINDLEY, Sr. stated that his family was about to go to Indiana Territory. Indiana Territory had previously been organized in 1800, and Illinois Territory had previously been taken from Indiana Territory in 1809. Statehood was granted to Indiana on December 11, 1816, about 4 months after William executed his will. Statehood was granted to Illinois on December 3, 1818, more than 2 years after William executed his will. Thus, when William executed his will, both Indiana Territory and Illinois Territory existed. William did not indicate in his will that any members of his family were going to Illinois Territory.
