Richard Pittenger of Howell township left a widow and seven children. Four of his children are to receive $5 each from his estate. They are Amelia Morris, wife of Robert H. Morris; Anchor Patterson, wife of Charles W. Patterson, Gertrude Applegate, wife of Rue Applegate; and Elmeretta Pittenger. George Pittenger, another son, is to get $1, and Celestina Sutphen, wife of Charles Sutphen, is to get $100. All the rest of the estate is to be divided equally between Mr. Pittenger’s wife, Julia A Pittenger, and his youngest son, Howard H. Pittenger. If Mrs. Pittenger marries again she is to have all the real estate and personal property left by Mr. Pittenger after paying the cash bequests to his six children mentioned above, but she must pay Howard H. Pittenger $1,000 in cash. Levi C. Irvin and Jeremiah Stilwell were the witnesses to the will.
