Dr. Samuel Nesbitt; whatever I may be entitled to from the estate of my father, Linus King, at his death to be equally divided between my son and daughter. I appoint my brother-in-law Revnd. Dr. Samuel Nesbitt and Susanna Gallop, executors.
Dated September 20, 1795.
Witnesses, Daniel Baehr, Abraham Taylor, Ephraim Baylis.
Proved, January 9, 1798.
From Mary's reference in her will to her "brother-in-law Revnd. Dr. Samuel Nesbitt", apparently the same Samuel Nesbitt who married Mehitable Henshaw, it can be concluded that Samuel and Mehitable were apparently siblings.
