" 600 acres of the land I enabled him to purchase in the Opost settlements.
He is to have his choice of what land is there, & I allow him 200 pounds
alongst with it." The OPOST SETTLEMENTS are now known to be at
Old Vincennes, Knox Co., Indiana. Jacob Brinker owned 1500 acres,
which he willed to Abraham (600 acres) & 900 acres to 4 grandchildren
(John Learn, 300 a.; Jacob Shaver [Shaffer], 200 a.; Margaret Shaver, 200 a.;
Elizabeth Shaver, 200 a.) This land was likely sold by the Brinkers who
inherited it, and none seem to have lived there. In 1812 Margaret Shaver
(then married to Philip Keister) traded her 200 acres of land at Vincennes
to her Uncle Abraham Brinker in exchange for some of his land in Butler
Co., PA.

NOTES & SOURCES:
1. There actual date of birth of Susanna is uncertain, as the baptism in 1769
does not have a birthdate. There is a birth/baptism record for Susanna, dau.
of Jacob Brinker & Susannah, at the Blue Church, St. Paul's Union, Upper
Saucon Twp., Lehigh Co. -- says born 26 Oct 1760. However, if this same
Susanna was born in 1760, she would be almost too old to have all the
children assigned to her. Perhaps the earlier record is for a child who died,
and the name was given again in 1769?

2.The Will of her father, Jacob Brinker, indicates that she was married
to Jacob Berlin in 1798. Date of death of Jacob Shaffer is unknown.]
