The inventory of Gabriel Harris, compared with that of his father, illustrated the rapid march of improvement in the plantation.  the homestead, consisting of a new house, orchard, cider-mill and smith's shop, value together at 200 pounds, was assigned to Thomas, the eldest son, for his double portion.  the inheritance of the other children, six in number, was 100 pounds each.  Among the wearing apparel are:
        A broad-cloth coat with red lining
        Two Castors, (beaver hats)
        A white serge coat: a Kersey coat
        A serge coat and doublet; a wash-leather doublet
        Two red wescotes - a stuff coat and breeches
