Here's what each child received:
- son Bernard Dirks 16/63
- daughter Lena 9/63
- daughter Mary 9/63
- daughter Bertha 9/63
- daughter Anna 9/63
- children of deceased daughter Gesche together receive 9/63
- children of deceased son Henry together receive 2/63
The estate records don't explicitly indicate why Bernard received more than his sisters and why Henry's children received a smaller slice of the pie than the others.
But we've got it figured out.
