His illness may have accounted for his being named as his Mother’s first heir and her chosen words in her will of, “I give and Bequeath unto My Son John York one feather bed called my own bed and two sheets for himself and his Heirs forever.” All of the other children with exception of Sarah, the Executrix of the will, were willed seventy-five cents each.
