  • A dispute over the estate of Jacques Fonteyn resulted in an agreement signed by surviving children and grandchildren. It is a primary document for sorting out his family. It is held in private hands and am thrilled to have been given a photocopy which I have scanned. It doesn't say in what precise location that the bond was executed, but it will be Middlesex or Somerset, New Jersey, Colonial America. There is not a corresponding document filed in any county court that I have ever seen. Van Tine-9 19:02, 10 September 2015 (EDT)
