Iowa Falls, Iowa
August 2, 1935
To All Interested Parties-
The Executor and attorneys have made an exhaustive search for several months to find the persons entitled to take as beneficiaries under the will of Charles P. Rothenberger, Deceased, and following you will find the list as the same now stands, we believe it to be correct. If there are any changes or corrections to be made they should be made without delay as the Executor expects to make distribution of the estate as soon as possible and probably in October. The notice enclosed was ordered by the Court and on September, 4th, 1935, it is expected that the Will will be construed by the Court as to Paragraphs 15 and 16, and as to whether the parties taking under said paragraphs shall take per capita or per stirpes, or in other words whether all of the heirs of any one uncle or aunt of the deceased, regardless of the degree of relationship, take equally, or whether they take by families.
Taking the heirs of Mrs. George Schneider for example, who are entitled to one-sixth of he estate, it is our claim and opinion that each of her six children, or their heirs, take a sixth of a sixth of this estate and thus we find that each of her living heirs Laura Swick, Caroline Kimm, Mary Lacher and Rosa Bausch, each take one-thirtysixth, and the heirs of Louis Schneider take one-thirtysixth to be divided equally between them, as will also the heirs of Emma Kimm, except that her grandchildren will take their deceased parents' shares. If any of you have any different claim or contention you can be heard at the hearing of which you have just been notified. At any rate you have a right to be heard both on construction of will and the shares the various beneficiaries are entitled to.
