Will of Thomas Williams, Jr. - 1761
In the name of God, Amen. I Thomas Williams, Jr., of Albany, innholder, being in perfect health. I leave to my son Thomas £6, in right of Primogeniture. I leave to my wife Marcia all my estate, during her widowhood. After her death or marriage I leave all my estate, real and personal, to my children, Thomas, Herman, and Johana. I make my wife, executor.
"Johana": He most likely means his youngest son who was christened "Jan" in 1719 and was known in Albany as "John Williams." He does not appear to have had a daughter named "Johana."
