2. Property in Bloom Twp., Fairfield, OH. 4 When two or more persons held real estate as cotenants and they wanted to divide that property among them, a petition for partition (or division) was requested. The majority of partitions took place when property was left to heirs in a joint tenancy as a probate settlement. In the partition records for Samuel Weiser, it mentions as an heir to Elizabeth Weiser Courtright, "Sarah, wife of Henry Bicher." Since in the 1870 Census we see Sarah and husband Henry Bicher living as neighbors to a Courtright, it appears the land was divided among them.
