(Witness to Will) Probate4 May 1807Two of the original witnesses, Ephraim Tilson Jr. and Obadiah Lyon were with Ebenezer Hathaway when he presented the will of John Hooper for probate on 4 May 1807 in Plymouth County, Massachusetts. They both stated under oath that they had seen John Hooper sign and seal the document, and heard him declare it to be his last will and testament. Because Benjamin Cushing, originally selected by Hooper to be his Executor, had moved from the area, Ebenezer Hathaway 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.1,2

Daniel Tolman1,2

(Lands Committee) Estate and Land19 February 1799When probate was reopened on the estate of Ephraim Leach on 19 February 1799 in Plymouth County before Judge Joshua Thomas, the judge issued a warrant to Daniel Tolman, Ephraim Fobes and Daniel Fobes, empowering and directing them to take a view of the homestead farm that Ephraim, late of Bridgewater, had died seized of and to divide it into four equal parts or shares, first giving timely notice to all persons interested to be present if they saw cause. The men were further directed to assign and set off one share to the heirs of Ephraim's deceased sister Mehitable Leach, one share to the heirs of Ephraim's deceased sister Mercy Peterson, one share to the heirs of Ephraim's brother David Leach, also deceased, and one share to Ephraim’s sister Abigail (Leach) Keith, the wife of Jacob Keith, all in accordance with the directions in Ephraim's 1767 will. The committee was instructed by the judge to divide the shares by metes and bounds, considering quantity and quality, so that the heirs may hold their shares separately, forever. The judge ordered the men to make a return of the warrant with their doings and signatures, under oath, as soon as conveniently possible.1,2
(Lands Committee) Estate and Land19 October 1802The warrant to divide and distribute the homestead farm of the deceased Ephraim Leach was returned by Daniel Tolman, Ephraim Fobes and Daniel Fobes to the Honorable Joshua Thomas in Plymouth County on 19 October 1802. The committee's written report outlined the process they used, the details of each share, and how they were distributed among the recipients. The committee completed their return of the warrant by stating to the court that they had taken a view of the homestead that Ephraim Leach, late of Bridgewater, died seized of and, pursuant to the warrant and as directed by Judge Joshua Thomas, had divided the homestead agreeably and assigned and set off to the heirs of the several persons mentioned, their respective heirs' shares, to be held separately. The document was filed with the court on 6 April 1805.1,2
