Hi Janet, David George here.Haven’t talked to you since 5-6 years ago. I have not found anything more on Jesse than was online 10 years ago.You said you had the will, this is the probate of that will. Jesse died sometime between Feb 1815 when he signed his will and this probate date ofApril 20, 1815.If you have this, sorry.Good luck finding something, I have not had anything new for a long time.
