Note — In closely examining the will of Thomas who died in 1751 he states that his son William is left Negro man Wilefor & a coper kettle. The William who died in 1760 left his wife one Copper Kettle and son Richard is to have the money arising from the Sale of Negro man Williferd. Therefore our ancestor William who died in 1771 is son of William who died 1732. [¬© Copyright 1997 by Sally Moore Koestler in “Elizabeth Jones of Maple Lawn”]
