      In the name of God, Amen. I, Hezekiah Rogers, of Huntington, in the Province of New York, yeoman. All just debts to be paid out of my estate. I leave to my loving wife Ruth all the cash I have now by me, and also the use of one cow as she shall choose. My son, Alexander shall provide sufficient meat and
      bread, firewood, etc., that my wife shall have need of in lieu of her dowry or power of thirds. I leave to my sons, Isaac, Micah, Hezekiah, Ezekiel, and Topar half of the money that shall arise from the sale of a certain piece of meadow which I shall hereafter order to be sold. I leave to the five children of my son Obadiah, viz.; Ruth, Zebulon, Isaac, Platt, and Abel, the other half of said proceeds. I order my executors to sell a certain piece of meadow land lying near Fleets on the north side of the east neck so called, and to dispose of the money as above mentioned. I leave to my two daughters, Phebe Rogers
      and Ruth Sammis, 10 pounds each. I give to Isaac Rogers, son of my son Obadiah, all that certain tract of land lying on the north side of the road leading from Huntington to Coldspros, fifty-two acres, more or less, with all the fencing and all thereunto belonging. I give to my two grandsons, Platt Rogers and Abel Rogers, the house and barn, as also about twenty acres, called the Homestead, my son died in possession thereof, and built thereon, as also a field on the other side of the road, containing about fifteen acres, more or less, as also a piece of meadow land that I bought of Nathaniel Wickes both
      salt and fresh, excepting two roods on the west side, which I give to my son Alexander as far up as a certain Ditch, also a lot of upland and meadow called the North lit, all being on a neck called the Great Neck. My daughter-in-law, Mary Rogers shall have a privilege in the buildings and lands that I have
      given to her children until they come of age, or so long as she shall remain a widow. I leave to my son Alexander my dwelling house, barn and all my lands and meadows, and all my real and personal estate that I have not heretofore disposed of. I make my son, Alexander Rogers, and my friend, John Brush Miller, executors. Witnesses, Samuel Conklin, Matthew Hopper, John Shannon.
