Josiah Lockhart - court proceeding in Pennsylvania July 1834

Following is a decision of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania regarding a land dispute involving Josiah Lockhart. Given the date I am assuming this is the Josiah Lockhart mentioned in the will of Josiah Lockhart of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, 1809. He left most of the inheritance to his only son, Josiah Lockhart. I believe this is the same Josiah Lockhart who later died in Puerto Rico in December 1841 leaving a widow and 3 or 4 children at home in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. He was the representative of the U.S. government in the Virgin Islands at the time, I think they were still a Dutch possession. Not sure what land this suit is regarding but I am curious to find out more about this.

Every Name There Is

Names have been an obsession of mine since childhood. My quest beginning with this post is to list every name there is (personal name, not surname, pet name, etc). Not every spelling, mind you, just every name. I don't mean to list Ann and Anne.

So, beginning with A (and add any  you see that I have missed)

(there's irregular spacing between some of the names - no names are missing this blog editor is just weird that way)

40



Happy birthday to me. I'm 40. My goal is to feel younger at my next birthday than I do this year. Once I figure out a way to do that, I'll let you know!
