All I can add to what is below is that his wife was Sarah Worthington, 1765-1818, daughter of Charles Worthington 1736-1799 and Mary Hopkins 1745-1799. I'm posting this for the information it provides about his numerous enslaved workers. The whole will can be seen at ["Maryland Register of Wills Records, 1629-1999," images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33S7-9TR3-ZNZ?cc=1803986&wc=SNYW-BZH%3A146536801%2C150583001 : 20 May 2014), Baltimore > Wills 1815-1827 vol 10 > image 96 of 334; Hall of Records, Annapolis.
