Mary, Thank you for the information. I am still confused. The William on this will signed it in 1789. If this is the case he can't be the William who was married to Barbara Hume, as that William died ca 1749. Also, if he was born ca 1660, he would have been over 120 when he signed the will. Is the Rebecca that signed the will as a witness his wife? I have little to no information on William and Barbara's children, except for Margaret. I wonder if this could be William's son William.
