Notes for Daniel Horn:

"Daniel died in 1828 without a will and instead relied upon the normal equal distribution of his estate to his children. By law, Susannah had dower rights to the farm and apparently lived there for the rest of her full life. Daniel asked his son Jacob and Jacob's father-in-law, Benjamin Rutter, to witness his deathbed wish: Daniel said, " was his will and intention that his two daughters, Christena and Susannah should each of them have the following property, viz, one young horse beast, a cow and a bed and that this property should be taken out before the appraisers to make them equal to his other childlren that he had given property to...." "Susannah and son Jacob were the adminmistrators of the estate; after the property was appraised, Susannah set aside her few needs, the balance of the estate, excluding the farm land and buildings, was sold at auction. "The widow was allowed to take with her those items deemed to be necessary for her support and the support of the children, for one year. The appra isers stated she could have items with a value up to $165.56 and one-fourth cent; she also set aside other items at appriased value, before the public auction. "The sale was held May 27, 1828, a beautiful spring day [how do they know?], but a very sad day for the family. In-laws and family were there, along with neighbors. Everyone found something. Henry Lenhart purchased a quilt, sheet and barrel of dried apples. Lenhart's GGgranddaughter married Daniel Horn's GGgrandson, John Clark. These families were all inerlocked together by religion and common needs..." etc., etc., they sent the results of the sale, including this:
