It's been several years since I head Hank speak. He is a Fellow of the American Society of Genealogists and is best known for his books and articles on the Palatines. You can read about him at http://www.hankjones.com/

You are correct that the age of the female was inconsequential as once she was married, even at say age 15, she would not be listed as a minor heir. And yes, once married, her husband would normally control anything she inherited.
