Subject: odds and ends
I just was going over (again!) the Prairie UB cemetery list and I noticed that Mary (Stephens) Russell, wife of John is buried there. Says date of death April 16, 1875. You may have found this since I copied your Nicholas Stephens family info from your website, but in that you don't have her date of death. He is not there.
The will of John Wareham, wife Christina, was written June 13, 1805. He has a son John who may be the one who married Elizabeth Stephens but she is not mentioned in this will.
Peter Stevens, Dec. 3, 1804, wife Mary, no children listed. Leaves everything to Stephen Collet.
Peter Steffy, wife Mary Elizabeth. Will written April 24th, 1833. He has son Nicholas, daughters Elizabeth Moyers, Susey Moyers, Catherine (dec) who married Harmon (?) Farber. His exec was his "friend" Henry, I think his last name was Stephen. ( Others named Stephen in list, didn't look up: Mattias Stephen and Peter Stephen.)
Other Steffys ---Leonard Steffy ---son is Adam Steffy. George Steffy, estate to Samuel Steffy, 1871.
Anthony Sells is father of Abraham Sells.
In the little bit of time we took to look at the Orphan's Court Docket stuff, I found a lot listed. But we only had time to look at a couple of them, and it took us a while to figure out how to use the books!
In the document entitled "Leamer, John --guardian for minor children appointed" I thought we might find a lot. However, the guardian was being appointed for the minor children of John's daughter Catherine, deceased. Dated April 10, 1837. John Flora and Elizabeth Flora, twins, abt. 4 years old. (Father is Daniel Flora, husband of Catherine.) John Kimmerlein (Miller) is appointed guardian. Catherine, daughter of John Leamer and granddaughter of Henry Leamer. Kids get share of Henry's estate. Document W-34, page 328. Dates: 1831-1837.
There are several related to the settlement of Henry's will, 1844-1846. There should be some items before that but we didn't find them.
in 1816-1830 there was one about guardians appointed for minors, Henry and Jane. L, no. 2, p. 94. Dick may have photographed that since I don't have notes on it.
There were four about the sale of John's real estate after his death, and Dick did photograph that stuff. Seems like he had a lot of debtors and didn't own much!
More later! love, Bobbie
