[Digital copy by Paul Ridenour]

David Ridenour died in 1874 and did not have a Will.  Notice that four of his daughters died before he did or before they settled his estate in 1876.  Therefore, money goes to his grandchildren.  The four daughters were:

Barbara Ridenour Unger
Susannah Ridenour Roser
Lydia Ridenour Roser
Mary Ridenour Smith

George Ridenour at the bottom is my second great grandfather.
