Michael Grossman has a sister named Veronica that they called Fronia. In these documents it names his sister Fronia's husband as Christopher Culp. This Veronica/Fronia maybe our Frances Culp. She is the youngest child of Michael Grossman who died in 1756. Their mother almost immediately remarried and the step father took over the land. When her eldest brother Michael turned 16 he filed a court petition requesting that control be taken away from his step father, since his mother was deceased. Then in 1771 he filed requesting an appraisal of the property and division of it if it was possible and if not, permission to buy out his siblings.
