from: Johan Tobias Horine (1725-1773) website
"Tobias Horein, farmer, made his will August 14, 1773, when very sick. He left his three sons Adam, Tobias, and Samuel 150 pounds each at age 21, the money to be lent out at interest until then. One month after his death, all movable, except what was necessary to maintain his family were to be sold at public auction, being evaluated first by two neighbors indifferently chosen; all debts to be paid from this sale; and the mill to be properly finished, and if any money remained, to be distributed evenly among his children: Adam, Tobias, Samuel, Magdellen, Susanna, Catharine, Judith, Mary, and Elizabeth when of age. Wife Elizabeth and Adam were to have the plantation for nine years, as long as Adam behaved in a dutiful, industrious sober honest manner to his mother; if not (in the opinion of the executor), he was to be dispossessed.
At the end of nine years, the mill and 20 acres adjoining were to be publicly sold and of the remainder of the plantation, one third to go to wife Elizabeth and the rest divided among the children, reserving 150 pounds for the sons. "If there is or may be or will be any estate by my father Adam Horein of Flein near Heilbron, Germany, left to me." to be divided equally.
Tobias (II) and Samuel were to be sent to an English School and instructed until they knew the Rule of Three, (?) and the daughters to be sent to Dutch (probably Deutsch) schools until they could read Dutch perfectly, the schooling to be paid by his wife and Adam out of profit of the plantation. If any children died, his or her share would be divided equally. Wife was to have her share of the moveables. MICHAEL TROUTMAN of Frederick County to be executor. /s/ Tobias Horein. Witnesses were Thomas Johnson, William Lyons, and Hugh Kelly; acknowledged and probated October 30, 1773.
Descending Jacob’s Ladder, a genealogy history of the Troutman family by Thomas L. Troutman 1993, reports that John Michael Troutman (1739-1814) a large Kentucky land owner, administered Tobias estate in Frederick County.
The inventory was taken November 20, 1773 by Thomas Johnson and George Bril and signed by Elizabeth Horine (by mark), it included 1 wagon, 4 wagon wheels, 2 horses and tack, 2 colts, 2 steers, several cows, 10 sheep, 10 geese, 6 shoats (?), 3 sows, wearing apparel, household goods, farming implements, beehives, windmill, a Bible and psalm book, a conk shell, total 168 pounds, 10 shillings, 5 pence. The inventory was attested to February 10, 1774. The executor filed his accounts November 8, 1774, which showed a balance of 204 pounds, 7 shillings, 7 1/2 pence. Charles Hedges witnessed.
Adam sold the 303 acre property October 10, 1786 to Michael Troutman for 55 pounds. Troutman must have had other powers as executor, on March 20 1783 he sold 73 acres of Schin Talir Gutt to Henry Staley, and on August 20, 1783 he had 40 acres of the tract re surveyed under the name "Troutmans Delight". One wonders if these sales were known by the heirs. On November 22, 1793, while living in Bullitt County, Kentucky, he gave his friend Joseph Swearingen power of attorney and in May 1796 sold Troutmans Delight, with other land to Jacob Staley. This property would eventually return to the Horine family."

Troutman Families Of Kentucky
by Evelyn Crady Adams
John Michael and George Peter Troutman, the pregenitors of the two Troutman families of Kentucky, were pioneers twice over. They established their first homes in the early 1760's slightly south of the Pennsylvania border in Frederick County, Maryland, where all of Peter's children, the most of Michael's and some of the third generation were born. In 1790 and 1791 Peter and his family settled in the bluegrass section of Kentucky. Michael came to Bullitt County, Kentucky, in 1792, but few of his children remained there. Although the family origin lies hidden in the lengthening shadows of two centuries, the tradition that Michael came to Pennsylvania with immigrant parents when he was a mere lad, and that he and Peter were brothers, is generally implied in numerous records.
The Middletown and Monocacy Valleys in northern Frederick County, Maryland, where Michael and Peter lived, were settled largely by immigrants who began to cross over from Pennsylvania about 1735 and from that year until 1752 some seven Troutmans are listed among the arrivals in Philadelphia from Rotterdam. OF these, one Hironimous Troutman has been erroneously referred to as the father of Michael Troutman of Kentucky. Michael, the son of Hironomous, died childless in Berks County, Pennsylvania, November 1, 1804. John Leonard Troutman, who came to Philadelphia from Rotterdam, September 24, 1751, and settled in the Monacacy Valley in Frederick County, Maryland, in 1754, was closely associated with Michael and Peter, but kinship is not defined.
John Michael Troutman was a man of indomitable spirit and high purpose. He made his way successfully first in Frederick County, Maryland, from the time when it was the outpost of British operations during the French and Indian War until long after victory crowned the American Revolution; and secondly, in Kentucky when it was little more than a wilderness. Both of Michael's marriages took place in Frederick County, Maryland. Nearly all of his children were born there; it has been said there were twenty-four, twelve by each marriage, but records of only eighteen have been located.
Michael and his family lived in Middletown Valley north of Frederick, Maryland, in Catoctin District known then as Upper Kittockton Hundred, where in 1775 and 1776 he was a captain in the militia and a member of the committee of observation of Frederick County. His military record extends from Maryland to Kentucky and back again to Maryland. During his interim Kentucky journey in 1780, he served in the Lincoln County militia in July and August, under Captain Parmenas Brisco in General George Rogers Clark's expedition against the Shawnees. Michael's stay in Kentucky, if brief, was long enough for him to take part in the brave defence of humble frontier habitations, lend a hand in road building, and enter claims for more than three thousand acres of land. On his return to Maryland he resumed his captaincy in the militia, and in 1781 and 1782 he received some three hundred pounds as directed by Intendants Orders.
in 1792 Michael established his new home about four miles from the future site of Shepherdsville in Bullitt County (KY).
