Deaths of David Mosher and Mary Mosher
'David had died previously (about 1797), had left no will, and
his estate had not been probated while Mary was alive. She died 'about' May 31, 1813. Their son, Benjamin Mosher, of Saratoga, requested to be the administrator. He stated that all of his brothers and sisters were residing in the county (Saratoga), 'Elizabeth excepted,' that all agreed to
let him administer the estate, and that 'the husband after said Elizabeth' whom he had 'seen and consulted' also wanted him to administer the estate. Nowhere does it name her husband or where they are living. It does not name the siblings. A bond was issued and was signed by Benjamin Mosher of Saratoga, David Fish of Greenfield, and Commins Salisbury of Milton. The inventory of Mary's belongings
was done by Benjamin in the presence of George Mosher and
Richard Fish, who acted as appraisers, March 29, 1814.'
