You post your message without telling us what the will says, and how you think it connects to Davis Stockton; We know about several wills in PA, all belonging to The Robert Stockton line, not Davis.

Abstracted Will of David Stockton of Strasburg, Lancaster, PA; dated 3 JUL 1752, proved 23 SEP 1752; wife not named, Brother, Thomas, Robert, and George; leaves care of Samuel and Elizabeth Simmons to be divided among his 3 brothers (niece and nephew, children of their sister Jane & Samuel Simmons). Index to Wills, Lancaster, PA 1729-1850 (LDS Film) Bk J) Jane Simmons left their care to her father Robert Stockton.

Wm. Wade Hinshaw Quaker Records, Vol. 3, pg 17, Sadsbury MM Records; David Stockton m Elizabeth Smith 28th of 5th month 1752, daughter of James Smith and Alice Smith of Lampeter Twp. with consent of parents; Davis was received into membership of Sadsbury Meeting, Chester Co., PA in the 10th month, 1747.
His parents were Robert and Isabel who both died FEB 1747; another brother George m. Jane and d. MAR 1748 (old Style). Jane later married William Dun after condeming her "outgoing in marriage", so George did not join the Quakers.
Brother Thomas m. Margaret Fleming and died 1795 in Mercersburg, Franklin Co., PA at his daughter, Elizabeth Waddell's home; Brother Robert m. Sarah (Keith) Fleming and moved to Frederick Co., VA; Brother John m. Elizabeth Aldredge and resided in Maryland being the ancestor of Governor Thomas Stockton.
Robert's son, George m. Rachel Dorsey and founded Flemingsburg, KY.

Is this the Will you found? or did we miss one?
