"The Dodge Family of Essex County, Mass."
Joseph Thompson Dodge
NEHGR v46 p383 (Oct 1892)
"He died 15th June, 1671, leaving an estate valued at the large sum of
£1764 2s. He gave his sons John, Richard and Samuel each a good farm,
valued in his inventory at over £100 each. To sons Edward and Joseph he
gave the home farm, valued at £1000. To his wife Edith he gave certain
appropriate personal property, "to be her own absolutely," and gave her
"the sole and proper use of the parlor & chamber over it in my now
dwelling house," and made liberal provision for annual payments to be
made to her by her five sons. She outlived him seven years, dying 27th
June, 1678, at the age of 75. From this it is probable that Richard may
bave been born about 1602, and was about two years older than William.
Edith, before her death, also made a will, and the inventory discloses a
very comfortable state of worldly affairs. No grave stones, however,
disclose their resting place."
