Will of Abraham Gale of Watertown, 1718

The top image shows the first paragraph of Abraham's will; the second image shows the end of his will with his signature by mark.

Abraham Gale, ca.1642-1718, was the second child and oldest son of Richard and Mary Gale of Watertown. He was probably born in or near Watertown - his older sister, Sarah, was born there in 1641 - but no record of birth has been uncovered. His year of birth is estimated from the dates on his tombstone. Abraham married Sarah Fiske in 1673, daughter of Nathan and Susannah Fiske.
