Daughters are also named. He does not name his Wife, who evidently died before date the Will was made.
It is proven by the above Will that each one of his sons was of adult age, and therefore, all of age to take part in War. And each of the above named sons of William Barrick (Barrack) did serve as soldiers in the French and Indian War, and they and their sons are also named in the List of Associators in 1775, 1776, in the Report Journal of the Committee of Observation of the Middle District of Frederick County, Maryland, September 12, 1775 – October 24, 1776; viz: (see “SERVICE RECORDS”).
William Barrick (Barrack) who served in the French and Indian War in 1758 and who with his sons, Jacob Barrick, George Barrick and William Barrick are on the list of Associators, September 12 1775 – October 24 1776, Frederick County, Maryland, was the Great-great-great-grandfather, on his maternal side of the house, of Charles Wesley Armor of Philadelpia, Pennsylvania.
II William Barrick (Barrack) died in 1791 on his Plantation on Part of Monocacy Park, in Frederick County MD which he had inherited from his father, William Barrick, at his death in 1750.
William Barrick left a Will dated April 20, 1791, prob. May 19, 1791 (Liber G.M. #2, folio 378 Frederick Co MD WILLS). In his will he names his Wife, Catharine, his daughter, Catharine DeVilbiss, his son-in-law, Adam DeVilbiss, his sons Jacob Barrick, George Barrick, Michael Barrick and William Barrick (who married May 22, 1778 Catherine Heartsock) and names daughters, Mary, Susannah and Sarah.
