1817 Estate Release:1632 On 28 April 1817 Frederick Fromm and his wife Polly released their rights to the tract of land belonging to Frederick Fromm, deceased. The release names the legal heirs of Frederick Fromm as follows: "the said Frederick From dying intestate seized and possessed in fee of the said tract of land with the appurtenances which became the property of the legal heirs of the said deceased, which Frederick and Jonas From, parties to these presents did take, at the appraisement, and which the remaining heirs, to wit, Frederick Neighman and Barbara his wife, Daniel Frybarger and Catherine his wife, Daniel Boone and Magdalena his wife, Daniel Stem and Sally his wife, Elizabeth From and Susan From heirs and legal representatives of the said Frederick From, deceased, did by their pleas bearing the date the eighth day of April A.D. 1816, grant, sell, and release . . . " This document released Frederick and Polly From's share of the land to Jonas From for $2,444.71. It is likely this was done in preparation for Frederick and Polly's departure for Ohio.

2000 Tombstone Note:1965 "They are buried in the oldest part of the cemetery. At that time they did not sell four grave lots like they do now. A lot was purchased when a person died and they were buried in the next available spot in that particular row. A wife could be buried several rows from her husband depending upon how much later she died. Christana's original tombstone is made of red sandstone and is about three feet tall. Frederick’s stone is also red sandstone but was broken at some time so that only about two feet is left. It probably was broken and laid on the ground for years. There was a period of time when the cemetery was very poorly maintained. After awhile the care improved and the broken stone was placed at a location near his wife's grave but in a row with people buried a few years later. The new tombstone which has both their names on was placed near Christana's at the very first row in the cemetery. This new stone was placed by the DAR from Fort Pontchartrain to show that Frederick was a soldier in the Revolutionary War."
