NOTE: Buddy Smith: "Jacob's will left monetary amounts to his heirs, but as stated earlier, his land was left to his son-in-law, David Abbott, whose son, Wilson S. Abbott, was an educated man who held high NH office in education. Some articles bequeathed by Jacob: 1 white mare, 1 wagon harness, 1 saddle, 3 chains, 1 grind stone, 1 iron bar, 9 harrow teeth, " a lot of pewter ware", 1 warming pan, 1 steelyards, 2 trunks, 1 high case/drawer, 1 desk, 7 silver spoons, 3 beds, bedstead, bedding, 3 tables, 7 chairs, 1 pr. handirons, tongs, and 2 shovels, wearing apparel. (anyone wanting to folow the flow of SMith land grants would find a very interesting story in istself. Jacob and Steven had a great deal of land. It tends to disappear in legal documents (neither were educated men, but farmers unable to read or write. Generations later, all these same land show up in a descendant of Wilson S. Abbott. He was suspect by Raymond historians of being involved in arson of the house on Oak Hill.)
