Issue 16 Names and the Will of Barbara Haase

Issue 16 of volume 2 of Casefile Clues discusses a 1903 era will and the problem that resulted because of the varying ways in which names were used in the will and in which they were spelled.

  • We make the case, that in this situtation, Addie was not the nickname for Adolphena. Addie was instead the nickname for someone else.
  • We make the case, that in this situation, what looked like Tena was not Tena, was not Lena, but was actually Fena.
  • And that I'm reasonably certain the executor paid the WRONG person $250 because I think the executor paid the wrong Ida. Issue 16 makes the case.
Subscribe now and get in on the fun when issue 16 goes out.
