Conrad Kolbe

I find a estate for Conrad Kolbe. He died in 14 Feb 1890. In his will, he leaves everything to his wife, Elizabeth for life, then to his heirs. The estate was not settled until 1936. Apparently, the courts had to decide how to divide up his property. He owned quite a lot of land. Here is a list of his heirs as they existed in 1936: I added other information that I found in the marriage records in Blue.
