    Isaac Fosters Will about 1691
    Isaac Fosters Will about 1691
    Much of the right side of the will is missing. The will is either undated, or the date is on a missing part of the page. Isaac said he is about 62 years old. His signature is feeble but legible.
    Isaac names his wife Martha and sons Jacob, Daniel and Eleazar. He named Jacob and Daniel "my oldest sons". Isaac bequeathed 20£ to each of his daughters but did not name them.
    Witnesses: John Pabody Junior and and ? Dorman senior.

  • Notes 
    • Unclear if he was named in his father's will because of the missing pieces. His brothers Jacob and Daniel were named as Isaac's oldest sons suggesting there are inaccuracies in the records.
