You skipped listing one child, Elisabeth to whom he left one Shilling Sterling.I.e., There were twelve children listed (I wish he'd named his wife in the will.)
Do you have records proving Zachariah's father?
Some believe him to be the Zachariah born in 1735 in MD, but I've not seen proof.That Zachariah's father was a William Allen.
I doubt his father was married to Lavina Jones, as Lavinia is approximately the same age as her cousin, Mary Woody.Lavinia would be far to young to be this Zachariah's mother.
Is there a marriage record for 1762?From the will, most of his children appear to be minors. E.g., No married girls.
