  • Notes 
    • Roswell's will, written earlier in the year of his death, is partially reproduced and summarized here:
      (Roswell leaves his entire estate to his wife, Sarah, for so long as she lives. Subsequent to his wife's death, the remains shall be equally divided between his children William, Ogden, Harriet, and Cornelia, subject to "the restrictions and limitations concerning my son William".)
      "whereas my son William Bradley has hereafter been the subject of habits of Intemperance which have rendered him at times incapable of managing his own business or providing for himself, buthas recently pledged himself to abstain therefrom and hath thus far duly fulfilled his pledge. I therefore in view of his past and present conduct and with a desire to promote his futurecomfort advantage and support, do further will direct and declare as gratification restrictions and limitations on the Second article above mentioned, that if he shall adhere to his present determination to abandon wholly his habits of Intemperance and shall at the time of the decease of my said Wife, so far wholly have conquered the Same, that in the opinion of my ... Executor it would be safe for him the Said William for his own good to take charge and management of business and his own future, then and in that case the said William shall come into possession of his portion of my Estate above devised and given equally with the other devisees. ... But in case the said William shall return to his former habit of Intemperance...I further will order and direct that my son George Bradley, who is hereinafter appointed my Executor, take possession and control of the share of my Estate so designed for my son William ... and hold the same as trustee for the benefit of the said William."
      (The will continues to give specific instructions on taking care of poor William should he return to his Intemperance.)
