And as to such worldly estate where with it has pleased God to bless me with in this world, I do give and dispose in manner following.
First after all my just debts and funeral expenses are paid by my hereinafter named executors, I do give and bequeath unto my beloved wife, Catharine the sum of one hundred dollars exclusive of certain articles and privileges mentioned on a testament of writing, being dated the twenty fourth day of September, one thousand eight hundred and thirteen. The one hundred dollars to be paid to my wife by my executors out of the first money they shall receive out of my estate after my decease.

Further, it is my will as the widow of my said son George has married again and have already advanced and paid him the sum of forty two dollars and one half cent of money more than any of the rest of my children.

For to pay for the land the said Fall in his lifetime bought of John Wintermoot. Next and then my son Daniel to receive his part to be paid to them as the money comes into the hands of my executors. Next it is my will and I order that my son Sebastian pay to my executors the sum of three hundred and thirty dollars, agreeable to his obligation given my son Henry to pay them the sum of one hundred and sixty dollars, in the same manner And my son Adam to pay them the sum of sixty dollars in the same manner.

Share and share alike when they become of lawful age. Next it is my will that the house my wife and I now live in shall be for her use during her natural life.

"Henry Alspach, founder of the American branch of the family, came over during the latter part of the 18th century and secured a location in Pennsylvania. His son, Adam Alspach, was born in that state in 1788, removed to Ohio in 1800, remained some years in Fairfield county and in 1830 came to Hancock county, where he died in 1856. He served as a soldier during the war of 1812. Among his children was Daniel Alspach, whose birth occurred in Fairfield County, Ohio, in 1811, and who was consequently nineteen years old when he came with his parents to Hancock county... When he grew up Daniel became a farmer and devoted his entire time and energy to his occupation until the termination of his life in 1891."

Courtright, wife of Christian M., died Nov. 11, 1872, aged 21y 10m 21d. This would make her date of birth Dec. 21, 1850. Since Catherine supposedly had a daughter named Gertrude who wasn't born until July 5, 1872, the more likely death date is that of Nov. 11, 1872. Also, her date of birth figured to March 21, 1850. She would've appeared as a child in the 1850 census. She doesn't appear until the 1860 one at age 9.
