In another great find on the new series of CDs, Eric Hedrick located a German language will in the probate file of Peter Hull aka Hole, Hohl. It too has long since started to disintegrate and carries old "scotch" tape marks but Eric was able to reassemble it and digitize it for posterity.
The German will carried a distinct "mark" made by Peter "Hole" and what appeared to be the German language signatures of Barnhard or Bernhard Lantz (aka Lance), Leonhard Simon (aka Simmons and Seaman), and Peter Fleischer.
The signature of Peter Fleischer is very similar to the one for a man of the same name on the oaths' lists for the Phoenix 2 Nov 1752. See Strassburger's Pennsylvania German Pioneers pg. 603, line 16. On line 17 is a Heinrich Fleischer of unknown relatonship.
However, the "signatures" of Bernhard Lantz and Leonhard Simon do not appear to be genuine. It seems most likely that the executor's copies of the probate documents were submitted to the court in error. If Peter Fleischer's signature on the German language will is genuine, it's possible that he wrote the recording.
Has anyone done any research on Barnhard or Bernhard Lantz? There is a passenger also on the Phoenix 1752 named Baltzer Lantz - there is no question that these are not the same men but does anyone know if there is a relationship?
On the appraisal of Peter Hole, there are what might appear to be the signatures of Adam Loch, Lienhart Simon, and Henry Baninger but they do not closely resemble other proven signatures of these men and are probably notations of the names of the appraisers.
Another signature in the probate package appears on the will translation - it reads "John William Leo." The Leo. may be an abbreviation - it's not clear.
