Mother*Hannah Latham1
Birth*13 July 1768Ebenezer Hathaway was born on 13 July 1768.1
Marriage*25 June 1788He married Chloe Hooper, daughter of Thomas Hooper and Deborah Cushman, on 25 June 1788.1
(Nephew-by-marriage) Will2 June 1803Ebenezer Hathaway was named as a primary beneficiary in the will of his wife's uncle John Hooper dated 2 June 1803 in Plymouth County, Massachusetts. Ebenezer was mentioned in the first item because John bequeathed to his wife Sarah Hooper the use and improvement of all the land and buildings he had already conveyed by deed to Ebenezer. The second item in the will bequeathed to Ebenezer, identified as "of Bridgewater" and a bricklayer, the use and improvement of all John's real estate which he had not previously conveyed to him during the natural life of John's sister Jerusha Mitchell, the wife of Jacob Mitchell. Additionally, John bequeathed to his grandnephew John Hooper Hathaway, the son of Ebenezer Hathaway and John's niece Chloe (Hooper) Hathaway, his heirs and assigns forever, after the death of John's sister Jerusha, the aforesaid real estate, with the exception of the seat in the pew in the meeting house he gave to his wife during her lifetime. And, finally, John bequeathed all his wearing apparel to Ebenezer.2
(Administrator) Probate4 May 1807Ebenezer, identified as a yeoman of Bridgewater, presented the will of John Hooper for probate in the presence of two of the original 1803 witnesses, Ephraim Tilson Jr. and Obadiah Lyon. Because Benjamin Cushing had moved from the area, Ebenezer was appointed Administrator and gave bond as required by law. Ebenezer was then instructed to return an inventory of the estate to the Judge of Probate and also to advertise for all persons owing debts or having claims against the estate. On the same day the judge appointed a committee consisting of Benjamin Pope, Nathan Hudson and Asa Thomson to appraise, under oath, all of the estate.2,1
(Administrator) Inventory20 May 1807On 7 May 1807 appraisers Asa Thomson, Nathan Hudson and Benjamin Pope completed the inventory on the estate of John Hooper late of Bridgewater. Two days later, on 9 May, the three appraisers appeared before the Judge of Probate and made solemn oath that the inventory was "a true and just appraisement" of the deceased's estate according to their best skill and judgment. Then on 20 May 1807, Administrator Ebenezer Hathaway appeared before the judge with a copy of the ordered advertisement and made oath that the inventory contained the whole of John Hooper's estate as far as he knew, and if he learned of more would account for it before the judge. The inventory's total value was shown as $3384.81 and consisted of real estate $719, a pew in the meeting house $200, securities for cash $1810, quick stock $310.75, farming utensils $53.06, household furniture $200, wearing apparel $60, one watch $20 and other silver $12.2
Death*30 June 1830He died on 30 June 1830 at age 61.1
