JOHNSON and SCHAUFELBERGER GENEALOGY
Will of Thomas Ford
Several features of this Will are curious:
Thomas Ford only names 3 of his grandchildren by his son, Stephen Ford, although the Family Bible of John & Hannah (Robbins) Dickson lists many more who were probably born before their grandfather's death
The Abstract implies that the legacies to his daughters and granddaughter will not be paid until his grandson, Thomas Ford, comes into his own legacy ten years hence
The legacy to James Ford, in the Codicil, far exceeds the value of the estate at the time of the inventory, as well as the other bequests. Is this a transcription error?
