Will of Mary Bowne Thorne

[Note: viewable at Note that Mary calls herself a widow in 1726, though Source:Wilson, Edith King. Bowne Family of Flushing, Long Island, p. 5, says her husband died "3m. 1727." (May 1727). An explanation for this discrepancy is wanting.]

I, Mary Thorne, of Flushing, in Queens County, widow of Joseph Thorne. June 20, 1726. In order to settle all worldly affairs, as much as in me lies, to prevent contention. I leave to my son Benjamin, my negro man Tom. Also all my share of that our waggon, and all implements of husbandry on the place where he now lives. All the rest of my estate to my seven children and granddaughter, viz.: my children, Thomas, Abram, Isaac, Jacob, Hannah, Mary, and Sarah, and my granddaughter, Elizabeth, daughter of Eliahim Hedger. I make my son Benjamin, and my brother, Samuel Bowne, executors.
