Elias Whaley was born on March 22, 1723 in Worchester County, Maryland tohis parents, Nathaniel and Mary Whaley. As far as we know, he lived anddied in the county of his birth. His father died when he was only five.
He met and married Martha Dale about 1750. They had three children thatwe know of. It is doubtful that they had more, since their last son,Thomas was born a few months after his father's death.
There was a will made for Elias Whaley on October 4, 1775. It wasinventoried on March 26, 1776. However, it was not administrated untilJune 29, 1789, thirteen years after his death. His wife had alreadyremarried by this time, a Mr. Bishop. The reason for this thirteen yearlapse is not known. I have formed an opinion. But, please bear in mind,that it is only an opinion.
At the time of inventory, Nathaniel Whaley and Charles Whaley were listedas heirs. These two were the brothers of Elias Whaley. However,thirteen years later at the time of execution, we find Martha Bisop andnext of kin, Seth and Esther Whaley, (son and daughterin-law) are theheirs. Could it be that a battle ensued over the will so that it wouldgo to his wife and son? It is only speculation and proves nothing.Please let me know if you come up with something else.
