Claim is made for 1/2 of rents due and expenses for repairs paid by John EBERT. Guardian was Urias S. BANTZ who claimed the expenses claimed were accrued more than three years ago and are barred due to the statute of limitations.

Testimony was heard from George METZGER and Michael BROMETT, the latter being a tenant of the widow. Also testifying was Joseph P. FLEMING who also claimed to have been a tenant thru the widow's agent, Gideon BANTZ. William S. BANTZ also testified and claimed that the child Maria EBERT has reached the age of 21 within the last two months. This dated 26 May 1856.
