From research of Joyce Poole: Last Will and Testament of Solomon Poole identifies his wife, Letitia, daughters Elizabeth (Archer) and Mary (Corsa), and each of his sons. Will being proved February 20, 1826. LDS film #0595627, Vol. L, p. 9-11. It should be noted that the typewritten translation of Solomon's Will indicates 'strikeovers' and smear marks on Mary Corsa's married name. At first glance it appears to almost read 'Ouesci", but upon closer review and in an enhanced/larger view, it is properly read as 'CURSCI'. "Corsi" was yet another version of the Dutch name that evolved to "Corsa" (in this family) used during the wars with the French, etc.
