I now have mary Elizabeth Hisey's guardian ship papers, extracts from her father's will, and her father's obit:
"DIED, at his residence in Wayne township, on Sunday, 16th inst. after a short but painfull illness, the Rev Jacob Hisey, in the 32 year of his age.
Early in life Mr. Hisey profession religion, and attached himself to the Freewill Baptist Church, in which he was son after ordained a minister of the gospel. He applied himself with great energy to the study of those branches most calculated to aid him in the discharge of his ministerial duties. But upon the sphere of his usefulness he had scarcely entered when death deprived the church of his services, and society an amiable man. He was a kind father, an affectionate husband, and a generous friend. Those who knew him best will regret him now."
