My older brother had a stroke about 8 years ago. I am only sibling living close by and he was a bachelor. Was appointed guardian and conservator of his needs and property. Had to have an auction a few months later. He had quit farming several years earlier but all the old machinery was still sitting around. Had to value all his property. Heck, how do I know what stuff is worth. Contacted a few locals to get some ideas, court accepted all my evaluations. Anyway, he was a gunsmith also. About 75 firearms in the house. Hauled all them to my house in town. About half belonged to others that brought them over for repairs. All the rest went on the auction block later in the fall. Three and a half years later, he passed away. At his funeral, guy comes up to me and says, you sold a rifle on the auction that belonged to my nephew. Gave me a name. I looked in my records. Saw that the rifle belonged to someone I knew. It was busted up in several pieces as some one had used it for a club I guess. I determined what it brought on the sale. Contacted the guy who had previously owned the rifle. Asked him if he would take the amount the gun sold for . He said, sure will. He had no idea my brother had the rifle as he had delivered it to someone else who then delivered it to my brother. That guy had since died also. He was happy, I was relieved. Every firearm had to be registered in the log book if it stayed overnight at brothers place so don't know how that slipped through. I did pay him out of the donations that had come in for his funeral, gave balance to church so it was not money out of my pocket.
