Thanks for your very informative reply! It has given me some information I
didn't have and confirmed some that I did have. However, the original
question on the deed of Samuel Ulry's heirs remains.
The deed mentioned was sent to the Brethren List by Wayne (SpiWebb) on June
12, 2001 along with a second deed - one post subject: Heirs of Samuel
Ulrich. The source was shown as Deed book No-1, Samuel Ulry's heirs to
Samuel Ulry, pp. 515-165, recorded May 20, 1831. The other post: Samuel
Ulrich deed--source shown as Deed book N-1, pp. 516-518, Samuel Ulrey to
Barbara Hay & Daniel Hay, recorded May 21, 1831. Would you be able to
access these from the archives? If not, I will recopy and send them to you
or maybe Wayne has them on file?
I did not have a 'home' for them at the time they were posted but printed
them off and filed them with Ulrich family information, hoping to find a
home for them later.
I am having difficulty placing the various Samuel Ulrich/Ulrey/Ulery/Ullerys
I am finding.
I do show a Samuel ULERY (son of Stephen Ulrich 1773-1823 and Susannah
Shively) b. 1801 PA m. 1821 to Susannah ULRICH (no parents identified) b.
1800, PA. I do not have any family for them but show them as both dying in
Crawford Co., KS...Susannah in 1883 and Samuel in 1886. This is all
Thanks again for your help!

Olinger filed a case against the heirs of Samuel Ullery deceased. As
Petitioner, Olinger owned the dower and rights of six of the heirs in the
Ullery land described as 72 acres in the SE 1/4 section 28 of Madison
Township. The heirs are the [unnamed] widow who has since married Jacob
Swinehart and her nine children: Barbara w/o Christian Shively, Elizabeth
Ullery, Esther w/o Samuel Shively, Susannah w/o Jacob Ullery, John Ullery,
Sarah w/o Samuel Ullery all of age and minors Samuel 19 on May last, Hannah
16 and Catherine Ullery 14. Olinger was asking for a settlement and the
balance of the land.

this is the case, Samuel joined by his wife Susanna was an heir rather than
the deceased parent. Do you have a copy of the actual deed or an abstract? I
would be very interested in the complete date of transaction, section, town
and range of the land.
