Alice, I got sooooo lucky with John's will listing the children. My Susan Ent was in limbo for years. No one has really worked on the Ents who stayed in Hunterdon. The females are the hardest. I have always thought like you that Ester might be Valentine's dau. because of her son's name.That would make her John's sister. If your Esther Butterfoss and her sister in law are the ones that went to Stockton then it all makes sense. Proving it is the hard part.
