  3. Middlesex Probate 16286: Division of estate of Humphrey Osland Late of Newton, dated 16 May 1723, names as heir "Elizabeth Willson the Eldest Daughter of the S'd Deceased", and is signed by her..
  4. Source:Framingham, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States. Vital Records to the Year 1850, p. 473, has a death record for Elezebeth, w. of Nathaniell Willson, in 1715, and Source:Barry, William. History of Framingham, Massachusetts, p. 442, applies it to this Elizabeth, but since she signed the division of heirs in 1723, something is clearly amiss...

    Nathaniel's son Nathaniel also had a wife Elizabeth (Reed), and as the death date of 10 Mar 1715 is 2 weeks after the wife of the younger Nathaniel gave birth to a daughter Elizabeth, it is probably her death that was recorded. The son Nathaniel leaves a widow Elizabeth, but his probate [Middlesex Probate 25170] has signs that it is second wife (a petition protests the will, referring to Elizabeth as Nathaniel's "then wife" (i.e., at the time the will was written), and Mary Rust, the only child, charges the estate for taking care of the widow, not of her mother. Even Barry says the wid. Elizabeth had a daughter-in-law Rust, which the petition says is the only surviving child of Nathaniel, the "in-law" part indicating she is not the mother, i.e., is a second wife, even though Barry does not mention 2 wives. All this to further suggest the death in 1715 is the wife of the son, not this Elizabeth.
