I need to know when a child legally "came of age" in Pennsylvania in 1855.
I have an orphan's court document from Junitata Co., PA, dated 1855, which names the seven orphans of a descedant. Three were "of age" and four were "under age" or "minors" (none were married). Does anyone know what those ages were? I presume the age for females was lower than that for males.
It turns out these ages are critical for helping to separate these children from others of the same name in the same county.
