Casting about for today's post,* I came across his profile on our family tree and decided to see if I could find anything more on NEHGS's site and found the note below attached to the first page of the probate file for the Benjamin Porter of Middlesex County, Massachusetts.
[Middlesex County, MA: Probate File Papers, 1648-1871.Online database. AmericanAncestors.org. New England Historic Genealogical Society, 2014. (From records supplied by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court Archives. Digitized mages provided by FamilySearch.org)
To the Honerable P. P Fay Judge of probate
for the County of Middlesex
Not wishing to administer on the estate of
Benjamin Porter my late husband I recommend
Solomon Rugg (my son in law) to that trust
As you see below, "our" Benjamin Porter's wife was Lydia Wilcox who married a second time in 1821 and survived until 1869.
So I'm off to correct our family tree.
*While looking for a respite from my search for Watts ancestors in the probate records of Morgan County, Georgia.
