    Will of "Joseph Packard 2'd of Bridgewater ... yeoman", dated 1 Jul 1756, proved 1 Dec 1760, mentions
    "my aged mother Judith Packard", "my three sons Namely Joseph[executor] Edward & John [youngest, under 21]", "my Five daughters namely Parnal wife of David Johnson jun'r Susannah wife of William Allen Judith wife of Jonathan Willis Betty & Mary". Proposes Hugh Orr be guardian for John, Jonathan Chandler for Mary. On 1 Dec 1760 the court granted letters to "Joseph Packard 2'd of Bridgwater" as executor of the estate of "Joseph Packard 2'd late of Bridgewater ... yeoman deceased". On 29 Oct 1760, "Ruth Packard widdow to Joseph Packard late of Bridgewater ... deceasd" gave a receipt to "Joseph Packard 2'd Executor" for £34.2.8 renouncing all further rights.
    [Note: the will was written 1756, Joseph remarried in 1759, so the will doesn't mention his widow Ruth. Also note the the interesting use of names. The death of the older Joseph Packard 2'd (as well as Person:Joseph Packard (3) the same year) made his son the current Joseph Packard 2'd, so that the document of 1 Dec 1760 calls them both Joseph Packard 2'd!]
