    Notes 
    • He purchased 196 acres in Bensalem of Joseph GROWDON, adjoining the tracts of his brothers and brothers-in-law, the deed bearing date July 1, 1697. He was an elder of the "Sammeny" church, having joined it at its organization in 1710. His will dated March 16, 1732, proved March 28, 1745, devises to son Abraham the farm he lives on, for life, and if he die without issue it is to go to his surviving brothers and sisters. Some years later the children of Johannes entered into an agreement by which the land was to vest in the heirs of those deceased, even though they did not survive Abraham, and inasmuch as Abraham died without issue in 1781, the subsequent conveyances of the land throw light on the family connections. In 1786 the representatives of Jacob, Rebecca, Christana, and Helena conveyed the land, 160 acres to Jacob JACKSON and later a partition thereof was had between JACKSON and Abraham Harman and Cornelius, sons of Fulkert.
