ABRAHAM JORAY, SR. Mini Biography

Abraham Joray, Sr. personal history

Abraham Joray Sr. (I8581) died in September 1785 in Upper Paxton Township, Dauphin Co., PA, at age 67. His will was probated in September 1785, in which he mentions his wife Catherine and children. In the will Abraham Shora divides his 500 acres of land between the children; sons Samuel and Abraham each to receive 150 acres, each daughter to receive thirty acres. The husbands of each daughter made it obvious that they were dissatisfied with the bequests. Samuel and Abraham Jury agreed that their sisters were not treated justly. In October 1785, Samuel and Abraham drew up an agreement to "keep peace and harmony among the sisters." They took only 100 acres each, and gave their sisters each 50 acres.
