  • Notes 


    • In February of 1793 Jacob Zartman made his last will and testament, and died either in February or March of the same year. He is likely buried on this farm where he lived from 1768 or 1769 to 1793. He has no tombstone. Following is a translation of his last will and testament:

      In the name of God, Amen. I, Jacob Zartman, of Mahanoy township, in the county of Northumberland, having taken to heart how that all men must die, but the time of death uncertain, have therefore thought fit to make this my last will and testament that my family may know how it shall be had with my estate after my decease. First, I give and bequeath unto my two sons, Martin and Peter, my land and plantation whereon I now live, and to their heirs and assigns forever, as tenants in common, on the following condition, that is to say, they shall bring all my affairs into order, and finally settle everything and then clear the land out of the land office, and after this is performed, then my true friends and neighbors, Martin Hoyl, Peter Forster, Philip Moyer and Samuel Weiser shall appraise the same, and after my sons, Martin and Peter have deducted their reasonable cost, as also twenty pounds for the new barn, then the overplus shall be divided share and share alike between all my hereinafter mentioned children, to-wit: Henry, Martin, Peter, Jacob, Margareth, Maria and Susannah, at and upon such time as the said men shall appoint, who shall have respect in the appraisement of the dower which my said two sons must give to my wife, Anna Mar- gareth, according to a writing, which I gave unto her, dated the 23d day of July, 1791. Second, I give and bequeath unto my son Henry the sum of one shilling and six pence sterling as my first born, and as such he shall no other or more demand. Third, It is my will and I give my little movables which I am yet in possession of, and which I have not yet distributed among my children, to my said sons, Martin and Peter, with this proviso, that if the horse which I have destined for my said wife Anna Marga- reth during her natural life, be yet living at the time of her decease, the same shall also be appraised and the money divided as aforesaid. I ordain and constitute herewith my aforesaid sons Martin and Peter executors of this, my testament, and make void all former wills by me made, be they in writing or verbal, and constitute this above. In witness whereof I have signed this with my own hand and put my seal thereto the llth day of February, 1793.
