Daniel Brumbaugh, David Brumbaugh, Henry Brumbaugh, 

Washington County : On the 3 day of August 1799 came Jacob Brumbaugh, [Jr.] one of the admrs. of Jacob Brumbaugh Deceased and made Oath* on the holy Evangels of Almighty God that the foregoing is a true and just Inventory of all and singular of the Good and chattels of the said Deceased, that hath come to his hands and Possession at the time of the making thereof and that what hath been or shall hereafter come to his hands or possession he will return an additional Inventory that he knows of no concealment being part of parcel of the Deceased Estate by any person whatsoever, and that if he shall hereafter discover any Concealment or suspect any to his he will acquaint the Judges of the Orphans’ Court with such concealment or cause of suspicion that it may be inquired into according to Law. 

                                           Certified by Thomas Belt, Register 

[Editor’s note: *If Jacob Brumbaugh Jr. “made oath” by swearing to the truth of this Inventory so publicly, he surely was making a statement that he was no Brethren.]
