The below is from the Hood River (Oregon) News Yesteryears column 30 Mar 2011

80 Years Ago
"L.M. Karstetter has received a letter from a brother in Pennsylvania and is now in a state of considerable elation over the prospects of securing a slice in a huge estate belonging to his paternal greatgrandfather. The letter stated that the courts had cleared the way for a distribution of this estate, estimated to exceed a valuation of a hundred million dollars, and that heirs are now being sought. The estate consists of large tracts of land in southeastern Pennsylvania and in Holland, and until recently the titles were under contest."

I've not heard of this, and also wonder about the reference to land in Holland. Can anyone add to this?

Thanks in advance,
Beth Johnston
