Anthony and Mary had been married 40 years when she died 1850. They were the parents of 10 children, although only four were still living when Anthony's will was probated: Samuel Leffel, Harrison Leffel, Daniel Leffel, and Anthony M Leffel. Two children, Frederick (1821-1830) and Delialha (1824-1830), died young so there were no offspring. Four of Anthony's children (Joel Leffel, Rebecca Roller, Eveline Jones, David M. Leffel) died previous to Anthony's will being probated and so their heirs are mentioned in the probate papers. Our family descends through son, David Miller Leffel.
Below is Anthony's will written on 16 January 1869 and an attached First codicil signed on 24 April 1869.
