Notes for Isaac Cornell

"I, Isaac Cornell, of Flushing, in Queens County, January 28, 1765." I leave to my wife Deborah her choice of my horses, and two beds and furniture. All the rest of my personal estate to be sold, and the mowing ground, adjoining the land of Joseph Cornell, Cornelius Van Wyck, Obadiah Cornell, and the highway. From the proceeds, all debts to be paid, and if not enough, the executors are to sell more. I leave to my daughter Margaret all the rest of my estate, and if she dies, then to my three brothers, James, Stephen, and Obadiah Cornell, and I make them executors. [1]
