Will dated 29 July, 1740: I, Samuel WILSON of Middletown, being engaged in the expedition against the Spaniards, and considering the uncertainty of my temporal life, do make this my last will and testament: After my just debts are paid, my will is that all my estate be equally divided to and among my brothers and sisters. And I appoint my brother John WILSON sole executor.
