In Reply to: Catherine Alspach(1734-1806) by Scott McClenny of 182

Scott, I think your info is incorrect: While some of the children are the same, the spouse is not Alspach!

Here is what I have for Johannes FRIES,


Will of John FREES, Robeson, 2/19/1770.
In the name of God amen, this nineteenth day of February in the year one thousand seven hundred and seventy, I, John FREES, of Robeson township in Berks county and province of Pennsylvania, am weak and sick in body, but of perfect memory and understanding, thanks be unto God therefore, do make this my last will and testament renouncing all others formerly made and done by me heretofore and that in manner following.
THAT IS TO SAY:
FIRST: My will is that all my just debts and funeral charges be paid by my exeuctors hereinafter named and appointed.
SECONDLY: My will is that my beloved wife Catherin shall that the whole management use and profit of this my real and personal estate until my youngest child is 12 years old, then is my executor to appraise my plantation and at that value is my oldest son to take possession of my plantation and whatsoever is coming out of it to the rest of my children, he to have one year free, and afterw3ards he is to pay ten pounds a year until the whole is paid, what is acrewing of my plantation, and when my oldest son John takes possession of my plantation then he is to give his mother as long as she stays my widow, yearly 10 bushels of rye, and five bushels of wheat, and 100 pounds of pork, and 50 pounds of beef, and sow a quarter of an acre of flax, and the third part of the garden, and fatten and foder the cow as his own, sumer and winder, and provide firewood for her and she shall have a horse to write when she has need of and have her peacable above upon my plantation. But in case my wife should marry again, then is she to be satisfied with her third part of my personal estate and what I have given her per advance, or over her third. But if my son John is not capable to manage my plantation, then is my executor to have full powr to sell my plantation at the best rate, and but the money thereof out shall everyone have their share, share and share alike.
THIRDLY: To keep my eldest son John out of two shares, I therefore give him per advance, or over and above his equal share, the sum of five pds., currency of Pennsylvania, for his use.
FOURTHLY: I five and bequeath unto my beloved wife Catherine, her third out of my personal estate whatsoever, for her own self and use. I give her over and above her third, her bed=sted, beding and what belongs to it, her chest, a mare, and a good cow, and all the rest what is a comng out of my real and personal estate is to be equally distributed among all my children, share and share alike, as they arive their age, as aforesaid.
LASTLY: I made and ordain this my beloved wife and my father-in-law, Peter KNAPPER[sic Knepper], to be my only and sole executors, of this my last will and testatment, ratifying this present and no other, to be my last will and testament. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal the day and year first written above.
