David FLOOK claimed the widow had an autercuptial contract
(prenuptial agreement) in anticipation of the expected wedding
and had retained all her property she had before her marriage;
the widow denied this and claimed she had $600 and it was used
by her husband, part for an advance to son Henry possibly. She
also stated the items she has were purchased by her through the
administrator. (This seems to indicate Margaretta may have been
a second wife and probably not the mother to the children listed
or at least not the mother of all of them.)

claimed his deceased brother Henry had one and that his children
should be prevented from anything until the claim was resolved.

the other property is the one which equals 120 acres. There are
no plots shown for the other parcels and there was no listing for
the sale to Jacob. Perhaps the new deeds would clarify this.
Total sales were $4,722.19; Each 1/8 share was $727.26; Henry's
children each received $80.26.
