(Niece) 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.

It contained about six acres and one half and was assigned to the legal representatives of Hannah ______, described as a deceased niece of testator Ephraim Leach. No surname was provided, and she was not identified as Mercy (Leach) Peterson's daughter, although she may have been. Hannah's share began at a stake and stones at the northeast corner of the share assigned to the heirs of the testator Ephraim Leach's brother David, and from there northerly about 58 rods to a stake and stones standing in the northeast corner of the farm in Ebenezer Leach's range; from there westerly by and in that range about 17 rods to a stake and stones standing in the range of Deacon Daniel Leach at the northwest corner bounds of the above farm, and from there in Daniel Leach's range about 58 rods to a stake and stones standing in the northwest corner of the third share, and from there easterly to the bounds first mentioned.1,2
