  • Notes 
    • In 1786 Valentine and Barbara "Reinhardt" were sponsors for the baptism of their granddaughter Barbara "Schraufer" in St. Benjamin's or Krider's Lutheran Church. MARYLAND GERMAN CHURCH RECORDS, vol. 9, p. 40 (C.T. Zahn & F.S. Weiser, eds; 1993).

      Barbara's husband's will is located in Frederick County [MD] Will Book GM #2, pp. 437-438. The will was signed 20 June 1791; it appears that it was admitted to probate 5 June 1792, with an accounting filed 20 Aug 1793. Ibid. The will is abstracted in "Frederick County Wills, Liber GM#2," vol. 8, Western Maryland Genealogy, at p. 137 (1992), and in M.B. Hageness, Abstract of Wills, Liber GM#2, 1783-1794, Frederick County, Maryland, pp. 58-59 (MLH Research, Anniston, AL (2001) [LDS Film 1440551].)

      The will provides among other things that "I Valentine Rinehart of Frederick County ... give and bequeath unto my well beloved wife Barbary [sic] all my estate both real and personal during her life, or as long as she lives my widow but if she should marry then she shall have the third part of my said estate during her natural life, and at the death of my said wife I give and bequeath to my well beloved son George Rinehart ... [various tracts of land] ... and he my said son shall give unto my said wife ten bushels of wheat and ten bushels of rye every year so long as she lives my widow ... and ... [wife Barbary, son George, and Frederick Sorrier shall be my executors] ***."
