  1. I would like review “Case #157″, that resolves the estate of Susannah Christ filed within the Mahoning County Estate Records dated 25 Sept 1846. It awarded Elias Huet (Hewitt) her brother, guardianship of the four minor children of Jonathan and Susannah (Huet) Crist (or Christ). Can you help me obtain a copy of the document, or direct me to where I can review it on-line? Thank you.
