William TENNEY. [Familytree].
Born 23 October 1698 at Rowley, Essex County, Massachusetts; son of Daniel TENNEY and Mary HARDY.

His marriage to Mehitable PEARSON was published on 3 September 1720.

His will was proved in 1782 at Rowley, Essex County, Massachusetts; but he is also said to have died 25 September 1784 at Rowley, Essex County, Massachusetts. This needs to be clarified. Could it be that 1782 was the year that his will was written, instead of the year that it was proved?
