Clara Gist1

b. circa 1835
Birth*circa 1835Clara Gist was born circa 1835 in Virginia, based upon her reported age on the 1850 census.1
(Relative) Census 185017 August 1850Clara appeared on the 17 August 1850 census in the household of another Clara Gist, who was 74 years old, in District 4, Brooke County, Virginia. Her relationship to the extended Gist family has not yet been determined. In addition to the two Claras, five others lived in the household. The elder Clara's son Joseph Gist, age 34, was a farmer with real estate valued at $7,875. Joshua Gist, age 32 and an M.D., appeared as the Head in the neighboring household with real estate also valued at exactly $7,875, leading us to believe that he was likely Joseph's brother. Also in the household were Joseph's wife Elizabeth Gist, age 24, their infant daughter Louisa Gist, age 1/12, and two male laborers. The younger Clara, while believed to have been a relative, was probably too old to have been a daughter of either Joseph or Joshua and too young to have been their sister.1

Birth*27 July 1680Abigail Gleason was born on 27 July 1680 in Sudbury, Middlesex County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).1,2,4
Marriage*4 November 1714She married first, as his second wife, Noah Morse of Sudbury, son of Daniel Morse and Elizabeth Barbour, on 4 November 1714 in Sherborn, Middlesex County. Their marriage was recorded at Sudbury.1,5,6
(Wife) Research Notes The Morse Genealogy reported that both brothers, Daniel Morse and Noah Morse each married, as his second wife, Abigail Gleason. The marriage of Abigail Gleason and Noah Morse took place on 04 November 1714 and on that date Daniel's wife Susannah was still living. She died on 14 April 1717, two years before her husband Daniel. Noah was still living when his brother Daniel died on 04 April 1719, and Noah died two months later on 02 June 1719. Our conclusion is that Abigail married only Noah Morse before her second marriage to Nathaniel Heaton.7
(Wife) Death2 June 1719Abigail became a widow when Noah Morse died on 2 June 1719.8,9
ProbateNoah's widow Abigail Morse, Joseph Morse and Joseph Johnson, all of Sherborn, were appointed Administrators for the estate of Noah Morse, late of Sherborn. Joseph Johnson was the brother of Noah's first wife and Joseph Morse was Noah's 2nd cousin and also the father-in-law of Noah's daughter Experience.10

Inventory*25 June 1719The Inventory of the estate of Noah Morse, late of Sherborn, was completed and appraised by Noah's 1st cousin Eleazer Morse and two others on 25 June 1719. It was sworn to by Abigail Morse, Noah's widow and one of the administrators of his estate, and filed with the Judge of Probate in Middlesex County. Noah's estate of real and personal property was valued at £150.10
Probate*7 July 1719Noah's widow Abigail Morse, Joseph Morse and Joseph Johnson, all of Sherborn, paid bond of £200 to the Judge of Probate in Middlesex County on 7 July 1719 obligating themselves jointly and separately as Administrators for the estate of Noah Morse, late of Sherborn.10
Final Accounting*20 July 1720 On 20 July 1720, Abigail submitted an itemized accounting of £38, 14s, 8p, reporting that to be the total amount of all the debts paid against her husband's estate, to the Judge of Probate in Middlesex County.10
Probate Agreement*11 January 1729/30Abigail Morse, widow and Administrator of the estate of Noah Morse, late of Sherborn, Middlesex County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England), and Nathaniel Johnson, grandfather and court appointed guardian of Noah's four children by his first wife Mary (Johnson) Morse, presented their agreement regarding the distribution of the remaining balance of the deceased's estate to the Middlesex County probate court judge for approval. It was approved on 11 January 1729/30. The agreement divided the remaining balance of £54, 18s, and 6p between his widow, who received one-third or £18, 6s, and Noah's children. The deceased left a total of five children, four by his first wife and one by his widow, Abigail Morse. Each of the four daughters, Jemima Morse, Hephzibah Morse, Experience Morse and Abigail Morse, the widow's child, received £6, 2s, 3 farthings apiece and Cyprian Morse, as the oldest son, received a double share of £12, 4s, 2p. The widow and administrator Abigail Morse was directed to give their shares to each of the children separately, or to their lawful guardians. If any further adjustment in the estate was to be made, Abigail was to deduct it proportionately from each of their shares and to take receipts.10,12
Marriage*27 October 1730She married second, as his second wife, Nathaniel Heaton of Wrentham, son of Nathaniel Heaton and Mary ______, on 27 October 1730 in Boston. They were married by Samuel Sewell, Esq., Justice of the Peace.13,14,7
