    • It is assumed that Job Felton's will addresses bequests to the children-as is traditional-in their birth order. This seems to be born out where dates could be independently verified. Amariah's birth date (1751) is confirmed by an obituary, William (1764) by headstone, and Asenath (1760), Harrell (1768) and Rachel (1775) by census.
