Thanks to people like Michael Ledo who are generous with their time!  Michael put Hans Good's will online and it solved a mystery in the Bare family...I have seen several entries that have Fronica Good (Han's daughter) marrying Abraham's father, and other entries where she married Abraham.  Based on the will of Fronica's father, we now know that she was Abraham's wife as stated below.  Kudos to Michael and everyone else who contributes to genealogy for the good of all! 

So, could there be two Fronica Goods?  maybe, but the LDS record above states that Anna Barbara FREDERICK is married to Hans Jagely BAR, and I think their records are right.

Why is it sometimes Hans Jagely Bar and other times Jacob Jagely Bar?  Is this really the same person?   Yes it is probable.  See "you know, what's his name" (index, left column) for some important information about the name 'Hans'.
