He had been given be fore by his uncle Abraham v.Minden in Amersfoort, former guardian over the minor children of Philip Salomon v.Minden, left behind, already a certain part of it, i.e. fl. 1500,-. Joseph now inspected the accounts and the books of guardianship & adm inistration, which are now in the hands of Hartog Alexander v.Embden, MD in Amsterdam, and which were kept up to date by his grandfather Mordechaij Cohen, and since his demise by his son Jacob Mordechaij Cohen in Amsterdam.

[the 1st comparant was involved in this a a doctor, the second comparant had been attending this death)

as it seems: the inheritance of the father was processed without problems; however the inheritance of their mother led to procedures with the councilmen, and came to its end only in 1738, after an agreement between the two brothers and the executo rs of the will of the late Moses Isaac de Jong/Rintel (norary v.d.Brink 23 May 1738 10309/274 and 10311/428). It seems, that the statement about the demise of Ansel of 1737 was a necessity for this agreement. (in the agreement he is named Abraham) .
In act 274 it is also mentioned that their mother married Mozes Isaac de Jong 'in the Jewish way, but not according to the laws of this country' (date of contract by Jewish marriage: 9 Feb 1724)
