My gggrandfather, David Carpenter, of Jamaica, LI, NY married Hannah Waters (Vandewater).
They both died about 1820 (I think), and her mother, Sarah (?) Vandewater had guardianship
of some property the children inherited from their paternal grandmother.
Sarah died before Nov. 1820. Her husband was David, their children were Lott, Robert,
Dolly who married Bedell, Elizabeth who married a Carpenter, Hannah who married David Carpenter.
I have copies of David's will, guardianship papers for Sarah, etc.
I am looking at this time for the inventory made at the time of Sarah's death.
The family were "of Brooklyn". Nicole Paulson
