[LOOKUP] The Will of Jane Brown Babcock

+2 votes

There seems to be a bit of controversy surrounding Jane (Brown-3032) and her daughter Mary here on WikiTree, so I'm looking for some clarification.

There is mention of a will for Jane from Westerly. However, I haven't seen this will... well... anywhere. I've been searching on Ancestry and FamilySearch to no avail. Has anyone found a will for Jane Brown or Jane Babcock dated  around 1718 or 1719? Should be Rhode Island, probably Westerly.

Austin, John Osborne. The Genealogical Dictionary of Rhode Island: Comprising Three Generations of Settlers who Came Before 1690 (with Many Families Carried to the Fourth Generation)  p. 8

Shows the general contents of the wills of James (Inv. 1699) and Jane - (Proved Feb. 4, 1719) but not the actual will.  Her section lists most of the heirs, including her children and some grandchildren.
