Re: Irena Mosher born 1805 in Sophiasburg, daughter of James Mosher
Re Irena Mosher and inheritance of property owned by Isaac Dean of Hungerford and his wife Elizabeth(querying maiden name of Mosher)
When property was being sold in 1862 in Hungerford after Isaac Dean's wife Elizabeth (?Mosher) had died, Irena Mosher had inherited the following land of Issac Dean from his wife Elizabeth;
the third part of lot 1 conc 2 Hungerford
the second part of lot 1 conc 3 Hungerford
Both these properties were jointly owned with Adam and Letitia(Beatty)Dean, Louisa Dean(spinster) , Eliza Ann Lake(widow of James Lake) and Mariah Clare(wife of Thomas Clare one of the three people that Thomasburg Hungerford County was named after. Adam, Louisa, Eliza Ann and Mariah were all children of my gggg grandfather Isaac Dean. He had one more child Jabez Smith Dean born aroun 1813 who challenged the division of his father's property . I do not know where Jabez was but I have a copy of the documents forcing the executors of Irena Mosher's estate to pay him money for the property that Irena Mosher had inherited from Elizabeth, wife of Isaac Dean.I strongly feel that James Mosher and Lydia Alger had one more daughter Elizabeth who has not been accounted for. I feel that this is furthered strenthened by the fact that Irena's will was in my Isaac Dean's Land Record book at Ameliasburg. She confirms in her will that she is the sister of Rhoda Mosher married to Alexander Wilson and also leaves money to Rhoda's children.
