His will dated Apr. 5, 1773 and filed for probate Jul. 24, 1774 in Frederick Co., MD, provides equal shares for his named children and for "Avoh [Eva] & Michael Tanner," the two children of his daughter Eve who died about 1760 as wife of Michael TANNER. Married about 1734/5.

Susanna Margaretha - d. after Nov. 1786, Frederick Co., MD. Called Margaret in Balthasar's will.
