    • Probate Estate file 257-220490

      Located in Section K43 in Lutheran Cemetery

      Henry was known for making beautiful looking cakes and lemon merangue pie--all of which were considered inedible because he never used sugar.

      Henry would keep the house cold in the winter. When he died, the house was warmed to about 70F for his wake and all of the paintings in the house cracked.

      Henry willed his property at 3910 Riverside Ave., Cleveland, Ohio to Irene, Stella, Milton, Henry, Dorothy, and Ruth. Probate Court no. 220490, Admisitration Docket No. 257, p. 220490. [35, 36]
