You could be right about John Nelson. Let me ponder this a while. Maybe Richard(II) did not leave a will. The term "probate" could have meant something different than I had been thinking. His widow Ann was made administratrix, not executrix. If John was the oldest child, that would explain why Thomas (who I am not positive was a son of Richard(II))did not seem to have ever owned Howland. Do you think the John Nelson who died in 1778 and whose estate records list his children as Richard, Cloe, Ann, Mary, John, Frederick, Sarah and Margaret, was the John who owned Howland? I'm not seeing that in my records.
