Personal History

Nathaniel Stone, fourth son of John Stone and Ann —, was born 11 May 1660, near Sudbury, in the colony of Massachusetts Bay.[2][3] He died between 23 June and 3 November 1732, probably in Framingham.[4]

In his will dated 23 June 1732,[4] Nathanel Ston (his X mark) of Framingham, yeoman, “being very sick and weak in body,” bequeathed to his wife Sarah household goods, a mare, two cows, and the use of one room of her choosing in the dwelling house; her maintenance was to be provided by his youngest son Hezekiah Ston. He declared that the heirs of his eldest son Nathaniel Ston, deceased, had already received their intended portion. He bequeathed to his son Ebenezer Ston £30 and his right to a piece of meadow (“known by the name of Wait medow”) lying near the Framingham meeting house on the southerly side of the river. He bequeathed to the heirs of his third son Jonathan Ston, deceased, a tract of land of about 50 acres in Framingham; the land was to be distributed by Abiele Ston, the relict widow, and if necessary, a part of the land was to be used for her rent and support. He bequeathed £10 each to his sons Isaac Ston and John Ston and to his daughters Mary Coggin and Sarah Cartter. He bequeathed to his youngest son Hezekiah his homestead, lands, tools, and the remainder of the estate. Deacon Matthew Stone and John Rice were named his executors. On 3 November 1732, his widow and heirs were all instructed to appear before the probate court of Middlesex Co. on 20 November 1732, in Cambridge, and on that date the three witnesses had all made oath to prove the will. Nathaniel's named executors and his widow all declined to administer his estate, so on 12 February 1732[/3], his son Hezekiah was appointed administrator.
