Joan, read my long post and tell me what you think. Apparently, John Adam's estate was put into seven shares. And Christian Winebrenner must have been in charge of them somehow, at least in charge of his children's.Christian Jr, Jacob, Peter are his sons. Who is Mary Reiver? Is she also his daughter? And then his daughter Catharine must be Conrad's wife as he gets 1/7th of the shares. right??
