Abstract of 1799 Will of Samuel Rodman, Jr. of Pelham

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 1799 will of Samuel Rodman, Jr. The abstract appeared in Volume 56, Issue 2 of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record published in 1925.

"SAMUEL RODMAN, of Pelham; Aug. 22, 1799; devised all real estate to sons Charles, Samuel and William, except undivided land on Miniford's Island or elsewhere which latter be devised to daus. Deborah, wife of John Bertine and Anne; to wife ----, all the money she and James Lewis carried upon Maniford's Island, likewise the expenses paid out for a law suit of hers at Bedford and White Plains; mentioned son Samuel under 17; son William under 16; g. s.
