Jacob Graff

The 1754 proof of the will of [an error occurred while processing this directive] interprets this signature in pencil as "Jacob Graff." See the third line below "To Edward Shippen."

The proof of the will also is signed by Hans Musselman and three of Peter's four sons, [an error occurred while processing this directive], [an error occurred while processing this directive] and [an error occurred while processing this directive]. Hans Musselman represents his wife, Peter's daughter [an error occurred while processing this directive].

Peter's 1753 will also mentions as heirs the children of his daughter [an error occurred while processing this directive], his daughters Barbara (GC5) and Susan (GC6), his young son Henry (GC8) and his fourth wife Frany Hiestand.

Who does Jacob Graff represent among these remaining heirs? Who does represent each of these remaining heirs? Do some not need representation? Have some died since Peter wrote his will in 1753? Henry has not. Why is Jacob Graff the only person to sign the proof in pencil? -- dg 2014 Jul 5
