The City Archives has the file but not the Will. I'll have to check for this Will at City Hall.

There was not too much information in the file.

He had 5 children:

Harriet Fireing ?

Hannah Zetia Davis

John W. Esher

Elizabeth W. Davis

Henry D. Esher

Executors: John P. Fireing and Elizabeth W. Esher

Rich -

That is interesting about the Leni Lenape Indians being named as the tribe. When I read it I had a "flash" of my grandmother mentioning that tribe and my connecting it with the Leni Lenape Park where we used to go for picnics when I was a child. Memory? False memory? I can't say but it is intriguing.
