Need a "translation" of these colonial tools
I am trying to decipher a 1750 Pennsylvania Dutch estate inventory. There are two items listed with the rest of the tools that I cannot figure out. In between the Geests (Kistes=crates) and the ax are:
pare of Stokings
The "P" is likely a "B", and the next entry is a grindstone. I really don't think a pair of stockings would be found in the tool shed. Do these mean anything to you?
