    • A-1-19 Rudolph Roth: Last Will and Testament of Rudolph Roth of Wilmot Township, translated from the original written in German.

      …. I the undersigned Rudolph Roth, dwelling in the Township of Wilmot, though being sick and weak in body, yet possessed of my good understanding, and also powers of recollection, memory and judgement….Whereas I am a mortal man, and I know not how soon I must leave this world, I hereby make and declare these presents as my last will and testament as follows. First that my children which I do leave behind do walk at all times in the fear of God, in peace, love, humanity and in the right Christian and brotherly union, and first of all strife after the Kingdom of God and after his righteousness, and when the Giver of all good gifts will give as much unto you at all times, as you shall stand in need of…Secondly shall my wife Maria Litwiller have the privilege to take out of the household whatever she will for her use and benefit as long as she lives. Thirdly that my wife has the right to build a house for her support after her desire as long as she lives, and that my Executors must assist her in the building and must pay for it out of the undivided Estate left. Fourthly shall of the Estate left, the debts being paid, my wife have to draw the third part as long as she lives, for her benefit, and the other two parts which are left, are to be divided among my children, and one shall have like as the other. Fifthly, that the place shall remain under my sons and not be sold, but my son Christian shall have the first right the place to rent or to take at a middle equitable price as it is right and Christianlike, but should Christian deem it too heavy for him to take and buy the place, then he shall take it in Lease until my son Joseph is on age, that they can take the place together. But, in case son Christian take alone the place, it is my will that my Executor allow him easy terms and drive him not too hard, but after a Christianlike and brotherly manner. While my wife draws the third part, he [Christian] shall pay out of the other two parts to the other children as much as either of them is to have, and after the death of the mother he shall pay the remaining third part in easy terms, of which one has to draw as much as the other. Sixthly, he shall keep for the mother one cow in pasture, to go with his own, also to keep her through the winter and feed her with hay, also for her own maintenance to give her every year twenty five bushels of good fall wheat, ten bushels of oats, three hundred pounds of pork with lard, twenty five dozen of eggs, the third part of the fruitage, to plant two bushels of potatoes and them to plough, to dig out and put into the cellar, the fourth part of the kitchen garden and also to manure it. He also must give her sixteen pounds of good wool, also to sow one Peg of Flax Seed, likewise, has the mother the right as long as she lives to have her firewood cut down on the land as much as she wants, and he must haul it for her and put it into the woodshed. All the above he has to deliver to the mother every year for her maintenance as her third part, but in case that he takes the place for some time into lease and the third part of the rent doth not reach as high as he must give to the mother, then my Executors must allow him to deduct so much from the rent charges, but in case my wife stands in need for more than the above mentioned, then my Executors shall have the right to give her so much more out of the whole undivided property. Minor children, namely Joseph and Magdalene stand under the oversight of the Executors, until they be on age, and my daughter Magdalene shall nurse the mother and remain with her until she be on age. As my Executors I nominate Nicolas Lichty and John Hundrich.

      Witnesses Peter Litwiller and John L. Lichti.
