(Witness) WillJames Slip witnessed the will of Marcus Palmer Sr. on 14 December 1820 in Hampstead, Queens County, New Brunswick; The following was transcribed from a photographed copy of a document held at the Gagetown Archives, Gagetown, NB. There are several instances where 'PALMER' is spelled 'PARLMER' in this document. This alternate spelling is also to be found on markers in the Palmer Family Cemetery in Central Hampstead.


Palmer, Marcus - Will          Made 1820 - Filed 1822

Marcus Palmer UE. made his will 14 December 1820, more than a year before he died 28 April 1822. It was filed in the Queens County Registry Office in Gagetown 25 June 1822. He bequeathed:

- to wife ANN (SLOCUM), all my household furniture during her natural life, and then be divided among my three daughters at her discretion. To my wife the use of my house and a comfortable maintenance from the produce of my Lands which shall not be sold during her widowhood, and half the stock.

- to son WILLIAM PARLMER his heirs and assigns 10 shillings.

- to the rest of my sons, CHARLES, MARCUS, DANIEL, and JOSEPH 180 pounds each.

- to son STEPHEN 200 pounds.

- to daughter SARAH 50 pounds.

- to daughter MARY WATSON 30 pounds.

- to daughter SUSANNAH ANN 25 pounds.

- In case of any accident among my children that shall leave them incapable of getting their living, I will they be supported out of my estate.

- In case any of my children die without lawful issue, his part shall be divided among my children in proportion to the sum annexed to their names.

EXECUTORS - MARCUS PARLMER, JR. & THOMAS UNDERHILL
EXECUTRIX - WIFE ANN PARLMER
WITNESSED BY BENJAMIN CLARK, LEONARD SLIP, JAMES SLIP.

     MARCUS PARLMER thought when he was making this will that he was taking care of every contingency. He couldn't foresee that in 1835 the home would burn to the ground. Only one chair was saved. It is a hand-made, straight-backed chair. It was painted black with paint made out of buttermilk and lamp black. The rush seat has been recaned several times by Indians, and is in good shape as when the Loyalist ANN SLOCUM PALMER sat in it.1
