Benjamin Cushing1

(Executor) Will2 June 1803Benjamin Cushing, identified as "of Halifax", was named as the sole Executor in the will of John Hooper dated 2 June 1803 in Plymouth County, Massachusetts. The will directed the Executor to sell all the remainder of John's personal estate not otherwise bequeathed and, after paying all just debts, funeral and other charges, to divide the remainder equally between John Hooper Palmer, the son of Ezekiel Palmer of Woodstock, Vermont, nephew Asa Leach, of Scituate, Rhode Island, and Michael Kennedy, his nephew living in some part of the state of Vermont.1
(Executor) Probate4 May 1807Benjamin had moved from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts when John Hooper's will was presented for probate on 4 May 1807 in Plymouth County, Massachusetts, so 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.1,2
