Estate of Eliz. Ohlegschlager

Elizabeth Ohlegschlager died 16 October 1909. Her husband, Philip Jacob, had died the previous year. According to court documents she left no estate except a mortgage held by her son and daughter-in-law Philip and Hattie Ohlegschlager. In March of 1910 Philip and Hattie wished to sell the real estate covered by the mortgage and it was necessary to obtain a release of the mortgage. They petitioned the court to appoint Simeon Bolton as administrator of Elizabeth's estate.
