The following probate was just shared on the Fayette Co., PA List (question follows after):

************************
> Diffenbaugh, Conrad, German Twp. dated 1-3-1812
> p. 522 prob. 2-1-1812
> wife Magdalen
> sons George, Conrad, Jacob, Daniel, Solomon, Anthony
> granddaughter Catherine Deffenbaugh, dau. of Conrad
> daughters Barbery, Magdalen, Catherine
> executors sons Jacob and Daniel -
> witnesses George Riffel, Peter Ellenberger, Anthony Difenbaugh
************************

When Philip Mason, of German Township, Fayette County, PA, wrote his will in 1791, he mentioned his three sons, John, Martin and George, and his daughter, listed as "Mary Mason". We know what happened to the three sons, but have never found any additional information about his daughter, Mary Mason. However, one of Philip Mason's neighbors was Conrad Diffenbaugh and we have wondered if Mary might have married one of his sons. Do any Diffenbaugh (of various spellings) genealogists know if any of Conrad's sons (as listed in his will, George, Conrad, Jacob, Daniel, Solomon, or Anthony) married a Mary Mason?
