Sale of the original land of Thomas Reinhart who died in 1793 from research by Anne Winters.
Franklin Township was formed in 1786-87 from Cumberland and Morgan. When Greene County was formed in 1796, it included Cumberland, Franklin, Greene, Morgan, Richhill, and a small portion of Finley.
1782 John T. Rinehart, Esq. is born (calc. from age at death)
1786 Thomas, Thomas Jr., Barnet, and Joseph are taxpayers in Cumberland Twp., Washington County, PA
1787: Intestate papers are filed for John Rinehart by his widow Ruth, "now Veach" in Washington County, PA. Simon has also been killed and Intestate papers were filed by his widow Sarah " now Jinkins."

1804 Deed of Gift or Will of Mary Reinhart, Widow, deceased Will Book 1, page 49, 50 Greene County, PA
She had no property to give as she had a life estate. But the contents of her home, her clothes, and what money she had she could leave to whomever she liked. No executors were named in this so called "Deed of Gift or Will of Mary Reinhart" as was written in the records. "I give unto Susanna Strawhan and to Susanna Reinhart at my death all my household goods and wearing cloths, my Chest and whatever there is within the said Chest & whatever there is within the house at my death with all the grain with all the grain I shall leave unto them or their heirs or assigns has a free gift." Witnesses Present: Isaac Dolston, James Eagon She gave to Thomas and Barnet Reinhart 40 pounds to be split between them.
I believe this is the widow of Thomas Reinhart who died in 1793. She names the same sons of Thomas Reinhart - Thomas and Barnet. John T. and Susanna Reinhart were the grandchildren named in Thomas' 1793 will. Thomas called her Ann Marie in his will, but she may have been called Mary by others. James Eagon was a witness to both . This is not definite proof but does imply she may have been an Eagon.
