Abigail Powell

'Richard Willets died . . . his widow lived till 1757, "having seen her granddaughter's grand child, and having her understanding and memory to admiration to the last." Richard Willets and wife Abigail (nee Powell) were both active members of the Society of Friends, and great unanimity seems to have subsisted between the two widows, mother-in-law Mary and daughter-in-law Abigail in their long continued widowhood.'[1]
