Clara Gist1

b. circa 1835
Birth*circa 1835Clara Gist was born circa 1835 in Virginia, based upon her reported age on the 1850 census.1
(Relative) Census 185017 August 1850Clara appeared on the 17 August 1850 census in the household of another Clara Gist, who was 74 years old, in District 4, Brooke County, Virginia. Her relationship to the extended Gist family has not yet been determined. In addition to the two Claras, five others lived in the household. The elder Clara's son Joseph Gist, age 34, was a farmer with real estate valued at $7,875. Joshua Gist, age 32 and an M.D., appeared as the Head in the neighboring household with real estate also valued at exactly $7,875, leading us to believe that he was likely Joseph's brother. Also in the household were Joseph's wife Elizabeth Gist, age 24, their infant daughter Louisa Gist, age 1/12, and two male laborers. The younger Clara, while believed to have been a relative, was probably too old to have been a daughter of either Joseph or Joshua and too young to have been their sister.1

Final Accounting*20 July 1720 On 20 July 1720, Abigail submitted an itemized accounting of £38, 14s, 8p, reporting that to be the total amount of all the debts paid against her husband's estate, to the Judge of Probate in Middlesex County.10
Probate Agreement*11 January 1729/30Abigail Morse, widow and Administrator of the estate of Noah Morse, late of Sherborn, Middlesex County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England), and Nathaniel Johnson, grandfather and court appointed guardian of Noah's four children by his first wife Mary (Johnson) Morse, presented their agreement regarding the distribution of the remaining balance of the deceased's estate to the Middlesex County probate court judge for approval. It was approved on 11 January 1729/30. The agreement divided the remaining balance of £54, 18s, and 6p between his widow, who received one-third or £18, 6s, and Noah's children. The deceased left a total of five children, four by his first wife and one by his widow, Abigail Morse.

The widow and administrator Abigail Morse was directed to give their shares to each of the children separately, or to their lawful guardians. If any further adjustment in the estate was to be made, Abigail was to deduct it proportionately from each of their shares and to take receipts.10,12
