Abstract of 1798 Will of Thomas Pell of Pelham

As I noted yesterday, in the last few months I have collected abstracts of early wills prepared by residents of the Manor of Pelham and, later, the Town of Pelham. I created an index to such postings earlier this year. See Thursday, March 29, 2007: Index to Transcripts of Wills and Abstracts of Wills Prepared by Early Pelham Residents.

Today's posting to the Historic Pelham Blog transcribes an abstract of the 1798 will of Thomas Pell. The abstract appeared in Volume 56, Issue 2 of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record published in 1925.

"THOMAS PELL, of Pelham; Apr. 17, 1798; mentioned wife Phebe and 'the household goods she brought me from her father;' son Thaddeus, son Thomas; dau. Susannah, wife of Henry Stringham; dau. Catherine Pell; dau. Elenor Pell. Executors, Newberry Davenport, Esq., of New Rochelle and Philip Pell, Esq., of Pelham. Wit., Gilbert Lawrence, John Ladrine, Newberry Davenport. Probated May 5, 1800."
