I give to my son David Strong all my right of land lying in Windsor called the equivalent land; this, with what I have advanced towards his settlement in Bolton, to be his portion. I give to my son John Strong all my lands and buildings and rights to land in Windsor (not before given to my sons Jonathan and David). Also I give to my son, John Strong, whom I make executor, all the residue of my estate, both real and personal, he paying the legacies hereafter mentioned. And my will is that what I have given to my son John Strong shall be to him and his heirs forever. I give to my daughter Esther Clarke the sum of £30 bills of publick credit in old tenor, and the like sum to my daughter Abigail Loomis. I give to my daughter Sarah Clarke 10 shillings. I give to the children of my daughter Elizabeth Burnham 10 shillings. I give to the two children of my daughter Hannah 30 shillings apiece, bills of the old tenor.

    John3 Strong, born at Windsor 25 Dec. 1665, died there (East Windsor) 29 May 1749; married (no record) Mary3 Pinney, born at Windsor 16 June 1667, died at East Windsor 4 July 1747 aged 80, daughter of Samuel2 and Joyce (Bissell) Pinney. Her parents married 17 Nov. 1665 and had three children (Pinney): Mary, b. 16 June 1667; Samuel, b. 20 Nov. 1668; and Josiah, b. 3 Nov. 1681. Josiah Pinney of Windsor in his will dated 2 Sept. 1726 (inventory taken 21 Sept. 1726] named his brother Samuel Pinney and his sister "Mary wife of John Strong of Windsor" [Manwaring's Digest, 2:560]. John3 Strong was the only man of the name in Windsor whose wife she could have been, and his own will, made 10 Feb. 1741/2, prior to her death, names his wife as Mary. So far as we know, she was his only wife and the mother of his children, the first of whom was named Mary.

    Savage gives him the wrong wife. Hannah (Smith) Trumble was widow, not daughter, of Joseph Trumble of Suffield and she married this John's father as his third wife (her second of three husbands). This John Strong's only known wife was Mary Pinney. In his Jan. 1959 TAG article, Jacobus takes us through the analysis which resulted in these and related conclusions.
