Hannah Greenfield, Lyme CT- will of son (Rowland)

Hi,

I am not related to Greenfields, but I found a very interesting will in New Orleans records (I copied a few when I copied mine)of John Rowland who was the son of Hannah Greenfield. He was born in Lyme CT and his parents were Asabel Rowland and Hannah Greenfield. His children were Elizabeth, Hannah & John. He married Frances Weaver Brooks. The will is dated 1845. For many of these wills a notary public went to the house of a sick person and wrote their will down, and the wills usually include where they were born, their parent's names, their wife's maiden name, their chidren's names, etc. I sure wish all wills had been done that way!
