The numbers were blurred and hard to read, so my extraction may not be entirely accurate.  It seems unlikely that Catharine would have applied for a minor's pension if Sophia hadn't died.  The pension applications would likely reveal a great deal about Conrad's family, Sophia's family, and Catharine's family.
