He gave and devised to his son John Mathias the plantation on which he then lived in the said township of Hilltown containing about 80 acres of land, be the same more or less, to him and to his heirs and assigns forever, subject only to the reservations hereinafter mentioned for his widow.
He reserved for the use of his widow, one room, her choice, in his dwelling house with privilege to her and her attendants to use and occupy to same, and as much of the kitchen, cellar, garden, barn, stabling and water as she may choose at all times with full and free privilege of access to and from. And he further directed his son John to pay to her $20 within three months of his decease and the sum of $20 semiannually thereafter during her life and shall further give to her or order as much good flour, meat, butter, milk, fruit and vegetables as shall be necessary for herself and for such person or persons as shall attend her in time of sickness. He further gave his widow such of his beds and bedding with the appurtenances and all such articles of household and kitchen furniture as she shall choose, with sufficiency of firewood fit for her use and convenient to her dwelling.
He gave to his daughter, Elizabeth McKinstry, the sum of $200 to be paid to her or her heirs at the expiration of one year after the decease of his widow.
He ordered and directed that his Executor, or the survivor of him, shall at the expiration of one year after the decease of his widow, pay to the Trustees of the Baptist Church in Hilltown $200 to be vested and kept by them and their successors in some safe and productive fund, the interest thereof to be paid annually to his daughter Gainor or her attorney in fact, and that her receipt alone, or that of her attorney, shall be a sufficient discharge, and that neither the principal nor the interest shall be subject to the control of, nor the payment of, any of the debts of her present husband, Alfred Bitting, but upon the demise of her said husband, or a divorce being obtained, the devise shall be paid to her or her heirs, and in case of her demise before either of those events shall take place, then the money to be paid to her heirs.
He gave to his granddaughter, Juliet Evans, $200, to be paid to her at the expiration of one year after the death of his widow, if she be the survivor, but if she should first die, then to her child or children, if any, but if none, then the legacy to lapse.
He gave to his grandson, Amos M. Heaton, a good feather bed with bedsteads together with such covers and appurtenances as are necessary for the winter season.
The will further stated that Abel had duly considered the situation and circumstances of the several members of his family with the view to making a just and honest distribution of his estate amongst them and, having done so, his will debarred, or prohibited, any one of them from obtaining, under any pretense whatever, anything more than was herein before directed, but if any claim should be made of his Executors, it shall be considered as part of the legacy herein expressed.
His will further stated that if his widow should survive his son John, it was his will that she should act solely as Executrix.
His will directed that, after the payment of all his just debts and funeral expenses, and the several legacies named, that the residue and remainder of his estate, shall be the property of his son John, his heirs and assigns, together also with all and singular such property as shall be left by his widow at the time of her decease, he also gave to his son John, his heirs and assigns.

|(Wife) Codicil||22 April 1843||Sarah's husband prepared a codicil dated 22 April 1843 to his will dated 25 September 1835, in which Sarah had been named an Executrix with her son John, stating that he, Abel Mathias of Hilltown Township, the testator in the foregoing will, did make and publish the following as a codicil to be added thereto and to be considered a part thereof.|
Viz, his granddaughter, Juliet Evans, to whom a legacy of $200 was left in the said will, having lately deceased, he hereby revoked that legacy and distributed, gave and devised, as additional sums, the said $200 to members of his family also listed as beneficiaries in his will, as he described in the codicil as follows:
To his daughter, Elizabeth McKinstry, the sum of $75 to be paid to her or her heirs by his Executors in one year after the decease of his widow.
To the Trustees of the Baptist Church in Hilltown, and their successors, he gave and devised $75 to be paid by his Executors in one year after the decease of his widow, to be held by such church in trust for the sole and separate use of his daughter, Gainor Bitting, upon the same trusts and conditions in all respects as were expressed in his will with regard to the bequest of $200.
To his grandson, Amos M. Heaton, he gave and devised $50 to be paid to him in one year after the death of his widow, or if she should die before his arrival at the age of 21 years, to be paid to him at his attaining that age.
And whereas a claim may possibly be made against his estate by his daughter, Gainor, or in her right, for the amount of certain legacies once in his hands, but which have been paid but not receipted for, he hereby directed that any amount so claimed, if recovered, together with all cost and expenses incurred by his Executors in attending to said claim, shall be deducted from the principal sum herein and in his will devised in trust for said Gainor, and be accounted as so much paid thereof.

b. circa 1760, d. 17 November 1809
|Birth*||circa 1760||Zilpah was born circa 1760. Her age was calculated from the age of 49 recorded at her death in 1809.1|
|Marriage*||She may have married Samuel Peirce.|
|Residence*||1800||An individual named Zilpha (__?__) Peirce was listed in The Boston Directory of 1800. Her occupation was given as retailer, commerce(s) and her address as Cambridge street, Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts.2|
|(CLUE Person) Marriage Intention||27 April 1801||An intention of marriage for John Samuel Ward Jones and Zilphia Pierce was recorded on 27 April 1801 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts. The record included the information that both were white and resided in Boston. No record of a marriage has been found, however, and John married Ann Joyce later that same year. Where this "Zilphia Pierce fits into the Peirce/Pierce family is not yet known.3,4|
|Residence||2 May 1805||An individual named Zilpha (__?__) Peirce, and believed to be the same Zilpah Peirce who died in 1809, placed an advertisement dated 2 May 1805 in the Independent Chronicle newspaper of Boston. It ran on May 2, 13 and 27 and read: "Salt Rheum &c. cured. WIDOW ZILPAH PEIRCE has for Sale, Indian Salve and Wash, which has cured numbers of the Salt Rheum, feald head, sore legs, &c. Indian liquid for Worms; do. tooth ache; do. salves for agued breasts; burns; piles, &c. Innocent and cheap -- no cure, no pay. N.S. The Wash will heal any serusulous humour in the face, and any sore on horses or aminals (sic). Cambridge street, opposite Chamber's street. May 2". At this point in our research we are suspecting that she may have been the widow of Samuel Peirce who died on 26 May 1802 in Boston and are "hoping" to learn that they were relatives or possibly even parents of "our" Zilpah.5|
|Death*||17 November 1809||Another individual named Zilpha (__?__) Peirce died in Boston on 17 Nov 1809 at the age of 49. The notice of her death in the Boston Mirror the following day read: "DIED. Yesterday afternoon, Mr. (sic) Zilpha Peirce, aged 49. Her funeral will proceed from Mr. Davisons's house, Salutation alley, tomorrow afternoon, 4 o'clock. Relations and friends are desired to attend without any further invitation."6,1|
