The dispute

Elisabeth  Catharina Hutstein had a very long lasting and  intensive legal dispute and communication from 1770 to 1793 with the municipal authorities of the city of Wetzlar after the death of her second husband, button maker  Johann Friedrich Liborius.

The extant files are collected in three heavy books available in the Hessian States archive. They include last will, guardianship bills of the Lentzer children, first marriage contract of Elisabeth Catharina from 1755 with Mr. Lentzer her first husband, several debt calculations of Mr. Liborius and letters to and from the magistrate in Wetzlar about a foreclosure of Mr. Liborius’ possessions.
