Thomas J Stitt and Robert M Crosby were executors. The provisions of the will mentioned 5 daughters: Florinda, Malissa(sic), Mary C., Jane H., and Sarah J. A "lunatic" son Daniel M is also mentioned. The executors noted that his will failed to make any provision for his daughter Hannah C Crosby, and they assigned her a proportional part of the estate.
