Isaiah, brother of Lydia Bates, [died] Nov. 27, 1787, a. 77 y. wanting 2 d. GR1
[Birth about 1710. Note: age at death would be more appropriate if the year of death was 1786. There actually is a separate death record for "Isaiah, bur. Dec. 12, 1786. CR1. [d. Dec. 9. PR4]." PR4=Diary of Rev. Ebenezer Bridge. No other Isaiah Spaulding seems to appear in the records for Chelmsford in the proper time period, so these may both refer to the same person, but the 1786 doesn't contain enough information, such as age at death, etc., to be sure. The Isaiah of this page is definitely the brother of Lydia Spaulding who married Robert Bates.]

Children of Edward Spalding and Lydia ---: 4) Isaiah, b. 1 Dec 1709. "His Will went to probate 1787; left his property to his brother Gideon and sister Lydia Bates."
[Unfortunately, more details about the will are not presented. The brother Gideon appears to have died in 1783, so presumably the will was dated before 1783, and Lydia was probably the only surviving sibling when Isaiah died in 1787.]
