(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
