This is a summary of the abstract of Jacob's will. This comes from another Southold Researcher and accounts for the conversational nature of it. I have parts of Liber C, but not Liber B, so I'm not sure of the word for word abstract, or even the will itself:
The will of Jacob Aldrich of Southold, 1 Aug 1805, proved 7 Oct 1806,shows one more [half?]brother (Thomas) and [half?] sister (Mary Rachel- or is a comma missing, and it should be two sisters?) for Joseph, not listed in Aldrich Genealogy. Legacies to daughters Bethiah and Mehitable at Goshen, Mary, Rachel and Mercy, and to sons Joseph and Thomas. Realty to said sons and to son Jacob "in partnership with my brother Steaven, deceased".
Exe'rs= sons Thomas and Joseph, Benjamin Goldsmith
[Liber B, pp. 384-5].
This Jacob Aldrich is buried in Mattituck Parish Burying Ground (called Old Bethany at find-a-grave). His wives are not buried here. See photo of headstone here:http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=96...
Aug 19, 1747: Jacob aldridge Mary Sandiforth married, p 268
Possibly sibling of Mary Sandiforth:
1752, "the beginning Jan" (os) - Oring Web & Frances Sandiforth [Orange Webb], p 271
(This is entry just under Jonathan Owin and Mary Dains, 1752/3, Mar 15)
02/22/1721/2: Thoms Sandiforth & Rechll Smith, married, p 257
Jan 8, 1746/7 - Henry Pike & Wd Rechel Sandiforth, p 267 (probably born about 1700, so she is almost certainly beyond child-bearing years)
Death of Rachel per Salmon Records:
01/03/1767/8: "Henry Pikes wife Rachel". , p 222
I haven't done an exhaustive search for the Sanford spelling, but I noticed one marriage record to a Hallock. I haven't found this Widow Elinor Hallock.
Nov 1753, Ezekiel Sanford, & Wd Elinor Hallock, p 271

Mattituck Burying Ground
Henry Pike, d 05/23/1768, age 75, is buried there, but no wife/wives)
Craven, Charles E. Included in "A History of Mattituck, NY" 1906, Mattituck and Aquebogue Parish Death Records, 338.
A "Mini" Pike Genealogy listing on page 680 of the 1928 Hallock Genealogy. Gives Henry, died 05/23/1768 - but does not identify wife/wives. Does identify 4 generations of sons down to William H Pike who married Hattie Hallock.
